Image: ARC Disclosure ServiceFrom 1 December 2012 the CRB will become the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and this means that certificates printed and issued from 1 December will be DBS Certificates.

Although there are also new DBS application forms from 1 December the existing CRB applications will still be valid and can continued to be used until February 2013. This gives the Disclosure and Barring Service time to send out new application forms to Registered Bodies within the next couple of months to distribute to their organisations.
