GBGroup plc t/a CRD, have been providing background information services for over a decade and were one of the very first users of the DBS Check (formerly CRB) eBulk service. Since then we have gone from strength to strength, working closely with the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly the Criminal Records Bureau) to replace paper form applications. In addition to our fully online DBS check service, CRD have been providing external identity verification checks to other registered bodies ever since the DBS changed the route 2 validation guidelines.

Now, in keeping with the demands of ensuring the integrity of potential employees, CRD are proud to announce our new Basic Checks service, the only Disclosure Scotland check provider that keeps the employer in complete control of the application process, significantly reducing the time to hire.

CRD has recently been acquired by GBGroup, the leading Identity Intelligence business. The acquisition of CRD follows the acquisition of TMG CRB in November 2012 and will make GBGroup the UK's largest criminal records disclosure umbrella service. In addition to the considerable opportunity for operational leverage through integration with TMG CRB, the acquisition reinforces GBGroup's entry into the growing market for online employment screening using GBGroup's ID verification, criminal record disclosure and entitlement to drive checking solutions.

"Having everything online with the support of customer services by telephone has made the whole process simple and easy to use."

"After contacting several companies CRD was by far the most straight forward and helpful without pressurising for sale. Clive was extremely helpful."

"CRD has managed to cut the recruitment process down from 12 weeks to two weeks. We take on far more people now than we have ever done."

"The identification system is very easy to use and takes no time to do. it is also very good to know immediately if you have not filled in boxes right - i don't miss the paper method at all!"

"Much preferred to the paper version. Excellent service, polite, friendly, helpful staff on the phone."

"This is by far the best CRB (or DBS) service we have used..."


"CRD are always helpful and polite and friendly."

"I have found using the CRD online service for processing our CRB checks far more reliable than sending in the paper forms, which can get lost or held up due to having missed one little bit of information or some small mistake on the form. I have also found that the completed CRB checks are coming back quicker."

"As a rapidly expanding home care service, Health Vision UK Ltd has benefited from CRD's efficient and effective CRB and ISA Adult first service. The move to a web based system has further improved the speed at which checks are returned and also simplified the process. The ability to monitor the progress of new checks and the fact that all details must be logged correctly, mitigating any errors and delays, has proved invaluable."

"We have been using the CRD service for over a year now and I feel you have provided an excellent easy to use system and have been very helpful if and when required."

"Excellent service - cannot fault the service provided."
