CRB; Vetting and Barring Scheme Announcements

We've heard via BBC news this weekend that the government is about to make 2 important announcements: The first being that the vetting and barring scheme will be scrapped in its entirety. Bretsa welcomes this decision. Whilst we felt the scheme had potential benefits, when simply added to the current CRB system it amounted to a duplication and unhelpful cost structure. The secondly key announcement is that CRB checks with information on will be sent directly to the individual to give them a chance to challenge incorrect information before the copy goes to the employer. Will this increase average return times yet further? It's already not unusual for a CRB to take 12 weeks, even with recent the development of e-disclosures. Bretsa would like to see faster processing but crucially much more clarity and formalising over systems of portability. We will wait at see. Check out the full article here
