DBS Checks

DBS Integration to Whole Game System

DBS, formerly known as CRC, integration via Whole Game System to be introduced.

As of Tuesday 17 March, Liverpool County FA will be enabling Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) integration via the FA Whole Game System.

DBS is the new name for what was formerly known as CRC (Criminal Records Check).

The system has been rolled out across the whole country, following a successful trial period, which appeared to speed up the process of having DBS accreditations added to Whole Game System.

This in turn should assist us all in the completion of affiliation ahead of the start of the 2020/21 season, which opens later in April.

FA DBS ONLINE CLUB REGISTRATION FORM

Clubs should note that once the system is enabled, you will need to log in to your Whole Game System portal and add your club GBG PIN number, in order to activate the system for your club.

Those that already conduct your own verifications should already have a PIN number.

For clubs that have not yet set up to complete their own verifications, you will be required to request your PIN number from either GBG or Liverpool County FA.

To contact GBG, you can call 0845 251 5000 (calls cost 3p per minute, plus your telephone company’s network access charge) or email onlinedisclosures@gbgplc.com
