You can appeal to the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) if they:
- make a decision to add you to the list of people barred from certain roles
- have previously added you to the list of people barred from certain roles and you want them to review the decision
You can raise a dispute with DBS if they make a mistake on a DBS check.
The mistake or decision can be changed if the appeal or dispute is successful.
An employer or licensing authority can also appeal a DBS check if they’ve talked to the applicant first.
