It also stores records of closed cases, making them available in seconds rather than days.
Each case record is identified by a reference number created by the police force investigating the crime. The CPS says that the system reduces the number of "cracked" trials, those that collapse because of administrative blunders. It also helps prosecutors identify criminals carrying out offending sprees across different counties.
Until now, courts have relied to an alarming extent on defendants volunteering such information. Electronic case management also underpins the government's pledge to set up a web site through which victims of crime can follow progress in their case. The attorney general, Lord Goldsmith, says the portal will be ready by the end of next year.
A national case management system, to be used by police, courts and prison services, will start to come into use by April , Goldsmith says. This virtually unified case management system will not be created by a single system, but by interfaces between individual agencies' systems. The first big step in creating this system is to link Compass with police case-management systems. Pilot links will begin from autumn. We have got to get this right," said Goldsmith.

Police-prosecution links are essential because the CPS is taking over from police forces as "gatekeeper" to the criminal justice. Last year, it took over from police forces responsibility for charging offenders. Key aims of the programme were to reduce the cost of running the disclosure service, through customers using a new and cheaper update service rather than continuing to use existing types of disclosure certificates.

The modernisation programme and the update service were expected to increase the ease and frequency with which people were checked, thereby improving safeguarding. But the Home Office and DBS do not know how many people have been prevented from working with children or vulnerable adults through use of this information. DBS checks cannot be obtained by members of the public directly but are only available to organisations and only for those professions, offices, employments, work and occupations listed in the Exceptions Order to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act  as amended by the Protection of Freedoms Act In January "Basic" DBS checks were introduced which will disclose details of any cautions or convictions deemend to be unspent in the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act The basic DBS check will disclose any cautions, reprimands, warnings and convictions deemed to be unspent according to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act Applications can also be done online.
An employer's reference to "a DBS check" could be taken as a requirement for a standard or enhanced check, which meant the disclosure of cautions and convictions, even once spent. However, with the introduction of the basic check, employers will now have to specify which check is required when advertising a job.
The aim is that this service will reduce the need for unnecessary and ineligible Standard or Enhanced checks. You can apply for one through "Responsible Organisations" which is a list of organisations and websites who will apply for a check with you.

The standard DBS check is primarily for positions of high responsibility for example, accountancy and security. A standard check may only be applied for if the applicant's job role is specified in the Police Act , as amended by the Protection of Freedoms Act Enhanced DBS checks are for positions involving certain activities such as teaching children or treating adults and can also be obtained for certain other professions for example, judicial appointments, RSPCA officers. An enhanced check may only be applied for if the applicant's job role is specified in both the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act Exception order and the Police Act In addition to the information provided on a Standard certificate, the Enhanced certificate involves an additional check with the police,  who check if any other information is held on file that may be relevant for instance, information that has not led to a criminal conviction but may indicate a danger to vulnerable groups.

The police decide what if any additional information will be added to the certificate using the Quality Assurance Framework. The involvement of local police forces can mean an enhanced check may take significantly longer than a standard check to be completed. The lists contain information on whether the applicant is barred from working with either of the two groups. Other roles from which they might be barred include work within or outside people's homes, or areas such as postal work, in which they would have access to personal documents.
The DBS work to a number of standards for the criminal record checking service and barring case accuracy. This was suspended in pending a review following the General Election. This review was published in February , making recommendations for the merger of the Criminal Records Bureau and Independent Safeguarding Authority into one new non-departmental public body , the Disclosure and Barring Service, responsible for barring individuals and completing criminal record checks.
Under the Protection of Freedoms Act , the DBS does not require registration, nor are any details retained on a database.
