If you have applied for a DBS (CRB) check, the certificate usually takes between 1 to 3 weeks to be processed by the Disclosure and Barring Services. 

Please note however, that the Disclosure and Barring Service has the right to keep your application for up to 90 days, if necessary. As this process is with the DBS, we are unable to chase this for you.

All DBS (CRB) checks will be posted directly to you after processing.

To apply, visit the form website here.
