Hi Jaime,
Thank you for your question.

The DBS is the old CRB and it means the Disclosure and Barring Service – a criminal record certificate which will show if you are ‘clear’ or not with the Police.

As an agency we have a responsibility to make sure that all candidates have a valid DBS when placed by us.
Should you want to read more about it, please read this article.
Hope this answers your question.

Kind regards,
