Disclosure and Barring Service

We offer a cost effective and efficient DBS Service to schools, individuals and businesses…………… (formerly CRB service)

With budgets stretched even further than ever, we realise you need a cost effective and prompt service to undertake clearance checks for your employees, staff or students.

Liverpool Compact EBP is a Registered Body with the Disclosure & Barring Service and also acts as an "Umbrella Body" on behalf of organisations that are unable to apply for criminal records checks themselves.

We will

• Ensure the application form is fully completed and the information it contains is accurate

• Check information against suitable forms of identification

• Countersign application forms to confirm the organisation has an entitlement to access criminal record information

• Comply with the DBS Code of Practice

How does the DBS check work?

Anyone involved in regulated activity with children and vulnerable adults must have an Enhanced Disclosure before hand.

Regulated activity is contact with a child /children/vunerable adult that occurs frequently. This is defined as once a week or more often, or 4 or more days in a 30 day period.

If you wish to apply for DBS checks as part of your recruitment process or ongoing Safeguarding Procedures you must be entitled to ask exempted questions under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (ROA) 1974 Exceptions Order 1975. (An exempted question is a valid request for a person to reveal their full criminal history (including spent convictions) and is made possible by virtue of the Exceptions Order to the ROA 1974.)
