Dear Disclosure and Barring Service,

If an employer applies for a DBS check for their employees: who can access their certificate first: the employer or employee?

Can you list what information can be disclosed in the "Chief Police Officer's discretion section"?

How long does any additional discretional information last on an enhanced DBS on an update service? And how can the update service be cancelled or a DBS?

Is the information on "other relevant information...discretion" held on one DBS certificate?

I look forward to hearing from you regarding this information.

Yours faithfully,


DBS FOI, Disclosure and Barring Service
