I am awaiting the results of a Disclosure and Barring (DBS) check

If you have been waiting over 60 days for your DBS application from North Wales Police, find out below how to check on its status.

What's causing the delay?

Enhanced DBS checks have to be reviewed by local police forces as part of the disclosure service. This can add to the time it takes to process your checks.

We are aware that some applications are taking longer than our target due to the level of work involved in certain cases. We understand the impact it can have on both applicants and employers. We apologise for any delay and will work to process them as quickly as possible. 

Check online

The quickest and easiest way to check on the status of your DBS application is by using the UK Government's online service

Call us

If you have any trouble using the online service above, call us on 01745 539 151 or email dbsdisclosure@nthwales.pnn.police.uk

We should be able to update you on how your application is progressing. Please note that, regardless of your circumstances, it's unlikely that we can escalate your case due to the volume of applications we are processing.
