Changes from the former “Criminal Records Bureau” – 01/01/2013


On December 1st 2012, the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) were both replaced with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). The DBS continues the work of both the CRB and the ISA, and has so far kept all the same guidelines and operating procedures.

Sanctuary is fully up-to-date with this change, and for most purposes the process for obtaining a criminal record check is exactly the same as before, with the only noticeable differences for most employers and their applicants being to the terminology and logos used at the top of the forms.
