Online DBS Procedure

To ease the process of applying for a DBS, there is a new system in place for coaches, officials and volunteers who require one. The UKA Disclosure and Barring Service application has moved onto an online form. This system not only makes it easier for individual’s to apply for a DBS but also makes it quicker by streamlining the process.  

The below steps will show you how to logon to the portal and apply for a DBS.

  1. Log onto your athletics members portal by clicking here. If this is the first time you are applying for a coaches or officials licence, you would have had an account created for you when you applied to attend a course. There are links provided if you have forgotten your username or password or if you have not been provided with one.

  2. Once you have logged in you will see your personal details section. At the bottom of the first section shows the current status of your DBS. Red wording will show that your licence has expired or that you do not have one. Amber wording will show that your DBS is soon to expire. Green wording will show that your DBS is up-to-date and that you need not do anything.

  3. Click on the appropriate link to update your DBS. Follow the on-screen instructions.

  4. You will need to provide three forms of identification to the person you chose as your verifier. The online process will state who you can use as a verifier and suggest verifiers local to you. You can click here to see what identification you can use.  

  5. Applicants who completed an online DBS application will still receive a DBS certificate. If no information is found, you need not send the certificate to the UKA Welfare team.

  6. When UKA have received electronic applications of your DBS certificate, your licence will be produced and sent out.
