After months of preparation, the new application form officially launched on 26th July when the DBS started to accept and process all of those forms received from 28th June.
As you are aware, the new application form was designed to allow customers to apply for a DBS check and ISA registration on one simple form. However, as a result of the Government's recent announcement to halt the launch of the ISA registration phase of the new Vetting and Barring Scheme, the form should now only be used to apply for a DBS check.
It is vital, at the introductory stage, that you pay extra care and attention in checking the application form before submitting the form to Personnel Ltd. Please ensure that you read the front page of the application form and use the e-guide, available at https://www.gov.uk
, to help you to complete the form correctly, and remind all applicants to do the same. This will help to reduce errors and minimise subsequent delays that will occur if your forms have to be returned.
If you require any additional supplies of the new application forms, please give us a call on 0113 3440192.
