The Update Service

The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Update Service allows applicants to keep their DBS certificates up to date online and allows employers to check a certificate online.

You can register online when you apply for a DBS certificate, or within 30 days of the issue date on your certificate (you’ll need the certificate reference number).
