Excell Supply DBS Requirements

All Excell Supply staff are required to have an Enhanced DBS for the Child Workforce.  Staff can apply for an Enhanced DBS as part of their registration with Excell Supply, or use an existing DBS certificate providing:

  • The DBS is an enhanced certificate for the Child Workforce
  • The DBS is registered onto the online Update Service

Enhanced DBS Certificates cost £44 to process, with a further £13 payable per year should you wish to register the certificate onto the Update Service.  There is a 30 day period from the date of issue of a DBS certificate to register it onto the Update Service.  DBS certificates that are not registered to the Update Service can not be used outside of your employment with Excell Supply.
