Disclosure and Barring Service

What do I need to do?

Before starting, ensure your personal details are up-to-date in Compass. If these are incorrect or you don’t have a login yet, the GSL can adjust them for you.

  1. Meet with the GSL or DBS administrator, somewhere with access to the internet. Make sure you have your ID documents, National Insurance number and the last 5 years of addresses.
  2. The GSL / DBS admin starts the DBS process in Atlantic Data.
  3. You enter your address history, confirm all the data is correct, and submit the information.

In about a week (on average) the process will be complete with a disclosure response. If you require further advice on the Disclosure process, please speak with the GSL.
