As of 31st May 2021, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) has implemented changes to the enhanced DBS check application process. The changes mean that DBS applicants are no longer able to amend any personal information on an application once it has been submitted.

The information sections affected by the changes are:

– Section A – Applicant current and previous names
– Section B – Applicant current address
– Section C – Five-year address history

Any applications that are submitted with incorrect information will be withdrawn and a new application will need to be completed. 

“Horus are a proud registered body for DBS and have adapted to the new Enhanced DBS guidelines which came into effect on 31 May 2021 – please feel free to get in touch for more information”
