DBS Checks and Coronavirus: a guide
23 March 2020
DBS checks can now be carried out remotely. See the guidance here.
Use a video link to see the required docs and ask for them to be scanned to you by email. Put a note in your Single Central Register to say you have done this and refer to the above guidance of 19 March 2020 in case the RI at your next inspection isn’t up-to-date. See the docs first hand when the person presents for work after the crisis ends, again noting that in the Single Central Register.
