DBS updates

Update from ECB Safeguarding Team regarding DBS


We would encourage you to check that you have a valid DBS and if necessary, make an application as soon as possible. It’s important to start this process early in preparation for the new season and to avoid delays when cricket activities resume.  


As a result of the Government’s current national lockdown restrictions and advice from the Disclosure and Barring Service, the ECB are continuing with Online ID verifications until further notice. This includes the initiation and verification of DBS applications.


Access is currently restricted to a limited group of Primary and Secondary users at County & ECB Level. Once you have submitted an application you will receive a link to use the Find a Verifier feature. After entering your postcode you will be asked to select 3 verifiers in order of preference. Once a verifier accepts your request you will be notified and advised to contact them to set up a Video ID meeting.

3.       Once the ID Verification has taken place, all emails with ID documents attached will be deleted.

4.       If you incur any issues with the application process, then please seek support from dbs@ecb.co.uk
