DBS Checks Extended by One Year
The date of DBS checks that are due to expire between 1st October 2020 and 31st May 2021 will be extended by one calendar year on 1st February 2021.
This follows the action that was taken in April 2020 for checks that expired between 1st March 2020 and 31st September 2020 to be extended by one calendar year.
For the avoidance of doubt, only checks expiring between 1st October 2020 and 31st May 2021 are to be extended. DBS checks that were extended 1st March 2020 - 31st September 2020 are not to be extended further.
Once Government restrictions are lifted, clubs will need to ensure that all individuals involved with the club have a valid DBS Check.
Reminder - clubs must ensure that all coaches have an accepted DBS check before they start.
