I understand that Disclosure and Barring Service, Disclosure Scotland and Access Northern Ireland are Executive Agencies that carry out specific checks and then issue certificates which give details of an individual’s criminal convictions, or state that they have none. I hereby authorise Checks & Processing Ltd through CBS Screening Limited to verify the information presented in my application for a criminal record check, for the purpose of performing a Basic Disclosure check through the relevant Executive Agency.

If required I authorise the organisation requesting this check to scan and upload the completed certificate into the online Basic Disclosure application system to enable a recruitment decision to be made. I confirm that my consent is explicit, fully informed and freely given for the purposes of obtaining a disclosure certificate as stated above.

By signing this declaration, I agree that I have provided complete and true information in support of the application and that I understand that knowingly making a false statement for this purpose is a criminal offence.

I have read and understood the DBS statement of fair processing and consent to the Responsible Organisation receiving an electronic notification once the application has been processed which states either the ‘Certificate contains no information’ or ‘Please wait to view applicant certificate’.

I declare that the information I have given is complete and correct. I understand that to knowingly make a false statement in this application is a criminal offence. I will give any additional information that may be required to verify the information given and will immediately notify any changes to this information.
