Alternatively, if you have subscribed to the update service, we will be able to check your status once we have your authority to do so.

You need to subscribe when you have applied for your DBS clearance and there is a time limit to subscribe of 19 days after receipt of your DBS disclosure. Please ensure that this is completed within the set time scale.
