Online criminal record (CRB) background checks

1 July 2015

In June 2011, eCRB services became an e-registered body after nine years of using paper applications, this means that we use the DBS’s online ebulk system to process all DBS checks.


The DBS introduced eBulk for high-volume Registered Bodies to submit applications electronically over the Criminal Justice System's network through a secure login.

Completely paperless, e-Bulk helps prevent employment delays, eliminates disclosure application data errors, reduces manual administration and ultimately saves you money.

Our online solution includes:

  • Validating the disclosure application form and data
  • Processing the application workflow
  • Checking ID
  • Counter signatory authorisation
  • Application dashboard for quick and easy view of all outstanding applications
  • Application management and criminal record check tracking - providing a clear view of all of your applications and their stage in the processing lifecycle
  • Management reporting to suit your needs


Key benefits

  • Prevents employment delays
  • Up and running within 48 hours
  • Reduces processing times to an average of 5 days.
  • No postage costs
  • Keeps all disclosure application records in one place
  • Simple way to manage and track the application lifecycle
