CRB checks go paperless

We've used for all our CRB processing for a number of years now and they've just started rolling out paperless applications - so of course we jumped at the chance. As most people know the CRB application until now has been slow and cumbersome. We had to apply online for the application form which was then posted directly to us. We would then post to the applicant for checking and signature, then they would post back to us for more checking. Then we would finally send it to the CRB offices. So typically it would take around 2 weeks for the application form to even get to the CRB. The new system will cut that out. We'll of course do all the normal checks but instead of all that posting and signing we'll simply upload all the applicant copies - wonderful! We're already using e-Disclosures - where we download a copy of the certificate rather than wait for it to be posted. So this is the next logical step. We go live this week and we're looking forward to seeing average application times reduce from around 8 weeks to 6 weeks. If you're a Bretsa team member looking to renew your CRB then don't worry - you'll be contacted by the office when it's due. Otherwise, for any questions or queries please don't hesitate to drop us a line on 020 8858 5958
