Changes to enhanced disclosure application

From 6 May 2019, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) will be implementing a change to the enhanced disclosure process. This change will mean that DBS is no longer able to amend enhanced applications that have been submitted with missing or incorrect information in key areas of the application

For applicants

Section C - Five-year address history

This refers to addresses at which an applicant has resided within the last five years, which have not been declared on the application.

Applications found to have missing address information as detailed above will be withdrawn and a new application will need to be submitted.

For Registered Bodies

  • Question X61 – Position applied for (incorrect workforce selected)
  • Questions X64 and X65 – Barred list checks
  • Question X66 – Home-based checks

If incorrect information is provided as part of these questions from Section X, the application will be withdrawn, and a new application will be required. If an application is withdrawn for the above reasons, a refund will not be given.
