On 1 December 2012 the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) will merge to form the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
The current CRB application form will be replaced with a new DBS application form.

All key processes and information required to complete the application form remain unchanged.
- DBS application forms will be available for use from 1 December
- You can continue to use your current stock of CRB application forms until 31 January
- From 1 February 2013 only DBS application forms should be used
- Any ‘old style’ CRB application forms received after 1 February 2013 will be invalid
