DBS Status Check Tool

focusgov have created a new digital service to support bulk checks of DBS certificates.

Available as a self-service platform, the system will allow authorised operators to carry out an instant online status check on hundreds or thousands of certificates and note if any new information has come to light since the certificate was issued.

The service uses the Multiple Status Check facility from the Disclosure and Barring Service and operates via a RESTful web service to return results in real-time.

Local authorities will be able to process files through a web-based portal and view results and basic reports, and download return information as a CSV file.

The new service is expected to save local authorities many, many hours of resource and cost with recent changes in legislation requiring checks to made more frequently on an annual basis, for licence holders such as taxi drivers.

For more details about the service including annual pricing, please get in touch.

focusgov are ISO27001, ISO9001:2015 and Cyber Essentials certified.
