Who processes DBS Checks?
DDC (Due Diligence Checking Ltd.) are our new Registered Body that will be processing all DBS applications for the Methodist Church.
A few points to take note of with the new system:

  • Lay verifiers will be added onto the system by the ministers who wish them to verify on their behalf. In this way lay verifiers can easily be added onto the system and information can also be easily kept up to date.
  • All DBS applications will be done electronically.
