Following a review of the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) fees, government announced that the charges for DBS checks will be reduced with effect from 1 October 2019.

The reductions will be applied as follows:

Type of DBS check

Current fee

Fee from 1 October 2019

Basic DBS check



Standard DBS check



Enhanced DBS check



Fees for other checking services remain unaffected by these changes.

The fee for the Update Service will remain the same, at £13 per year. The fee for an Adult First check will also remain the same, at £6.

Standard and enhanced volunteer applications will remain free-of-charge.
