Once a DBS Certificate has been registered with the Update Service a check will be automatically actioned on the annual anniversary date.
The status check allows us to see if any relevant information has been identified about the individual since their certificate was issued / last checked.
The possible outcomes are as follows:
- No information is revealed and certificate remains current = the certificate is clear and contains no previous offences/convictions or child barring information.
- Remains current and no further information has been identified = that no new offences/convictions and/or child barring information has been recorded since the original certificate was issued.
- No longer current = that new information has been revealed and therefore the individual must make a new application & complete vetting checks.
- No match found = that the check was unsuccessful - normally due to the individual opting out of the update service - a new application would be required if they are still involved in cricket.
Note only checks relating to criminal offences/convictions and/or the child barring service are picked up during the annual check.
