Protocol and the DBS

eSafeguarding has been an umbrella body for the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) since its inception as the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and has been ensuring children, young people and vulnerable adults are provided with a safe and secure environment for over 15 years.

Since December 2012 we have been working with the DBS, which was established under the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 and merged the functions previously carried out by the CRB and Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA), in order to develop the eSafeguarding online disclosure service.
