What is the minimum age for an ECB DBS?

The minimum age is 16.

How do I renew my online DBS?

ECB DBS checks have now moved to an online system – there are no paper applications involved. The system is quick and simple to use.

The application has to be started by someone within cricket who knows you and the role that you are carrying out. This provides the game with an extra level of security, and prevents anyone from falsely obtaining an ECB DBS certificate if they are not actually involved in cricket.

Please contact your club welfare officer or another officer of the cricket club to request that your application is initiated. If they are unsure how to do this, contact admin@ for assistance. Umpires and scorers may be able to contact their panel administrator.

Roles in Cricket that require a DBS check

All organisations working with children have safeguarding responsibilities and clear requirements placed upon them by legislation and guidance.

This applies whether you are a club, league panel or another organisation. It is there to ensure safe recruitment practices for individuals who work with children, including policies on when to obtain a criminal records check.

Who can verify my online ECB DBS?

Most Cumbria cricket clubs have an ECB DBS verifier and it will tell you their name at the end of the application process. If you have any difficulties finding someone to verify your ECB DBS, please contact 01785 212120 for assistance.

What documents will I need to show when my ECB DBS is verified?

You will receive an email with an applicant reference number, the verifier will need this and also the original ID you used when completing the application (example, passport, driving licence and utility bill).

How will I know when the ECB DBS is complete?
