How does the DBS Update Service work?

What is the Update Service?

The Update Service scheme is a subscription service set up by the Disclosure & Barring Service to keep DBS certificates up to date. Applicants can subscribe to the scheme either whilst their DBS application is in processing or within 30 days of the DBS certificate being issued.

Once subscribed to the scheme the applicant can use their DBS certificate again and again with other organisations, as their criminal record information is kept up to date by the DBS.
