Disclosure & Barring Service

All umpires are expected to hold and maintain their Disclosure and Barring Service Check, as they are in a position of trust and the majority of cricket matches will involve players under the age of 18.

On 1 December 2012 the CRB (who issued disclosures) and the ISA (who make barring decisions) merged to form the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). All reference on this website will now be made to DBS rather than CRB.

Who requires a DBS...

  • Welfare Officers (Club, League, County etc and deputies)
  • Coach (whether volunteer or paid, assisting or leading)
  • Umpire
  • Scorer
  • Junior Managers
  • Age Group Managers
  • Open Age Group Team captains
  • Junior Supervisors
  • First Aiders/Physios/Medical Support
For all other roles, if working closely with children, you should do a risk assessment or contact the County WO for advice. Also see the ECB Guidance above. 

The minimum age for a DBS check is now 16.

How to get a DBS

Renewing your DBS...

You should automatically receive a renewal pack from GBGroup. If you have moved they may not have been informed, and so you should contact them directly as described in the 'How to get a DBS form' section above.
  • DBS checks should be done every 3 years*, unless you register for the Update Service
  • If you are a coach, your ECBCA membership (and therefore insurance) becomes invalid if your DBS disclosure is more than 3 years old*
  • If you are an umpire, your ACO membership (and therefore insurance) becomes invalid if your DBS disclosure is more than 3 years old*
  • If you are a CWO, and your DBS disclosure is more than 3 years old* your CWO status is not recognised as current
  • If you are an ID checker, your ID checker status becomes invalid if your DBS disclosure is more than 3 years old*
  • Club Welfare Officers should ensure their staff and volunteers are checked every 3 years*
* Must be done every 3 years, unless issued after 17 June 2013 and you have joined the Update Service.

DBS for non-UK residents...

An overseas applicant who will be working with children will need to complete the ECB Vetting procedure. In order to do this they must complete a Non-UK Resident Vetting form. This can be downloaded from the ECB website:

With the ECB Non-UK vetting form the applicant will need to supply (1) a Police check / Certificate of good conduct from the Overseas Country and (2) a copy of the photo page of their passport.
