DBS Update Service


Subscription to the DBS Update Service lets you keep your DBS certificate up-to-date, so you can take it with you when you move jobs or roles within the same workforce.

As a Registered Body, Servoca Education is able to carry out online, instant checks to see if any new information has come to light since the certificate was issued – this is known as a status check.

Your ongoing subscription to the Update Service allows you to have greater control of your own information and allow DBS certificates to be reused when applying for similar jobs within the same workforce. You will also be able to see who has carried out a status check, and when this was carried out, from your online account.

What should you do now?

Subscribe to the update service. An annual fee of £13.00 will be payable to the DBS. You can subscribe as soon as the DBS start to process your application.

Important: The option to subscribe to the Update Service will lapse 19 days after the issue date of the Certificate.
