Latest DBS Guidance issued by The FA
The date of DBS checks that are due to expire between 1 October 2020 – 31 May 2021 will be extended by 12 months. This follows the similar action that was taken in April 2020 for checks that expired between 1 March 2020 and 31 September 2020 which also received an extension of 12 months.
For the avoidance of doubt, checks that have already been extended by 12 months will not be extended further.
The extensions to DBS validity will be made during the week of 1st February 2021, and communications will be sent out to those affected the same week. The individuals will not need to action anything, the new date will automatically be added to their Whole Game portal.
