Online CRB Checks

United CRB, a trading entity of United Medicare, are one of a select few companies across the UK capable of offering an online CRB checks service. The online CRB system facilitates a fast, easy to use and affordable CRB solution. Through our vast experience in the industry we found the major issues with the existing paper based system for completing CRB checks, research showed a great deal of frustration with the paper system, they felt the process was too slow, somewhat confusing and generally difficult to handle. United CRB provide a fantastic paper CRB service however the issues with the time and effort that the process requires cannot be avoided.

Paper vs. Online CRB Checks



Online CRB Checks

Speed 1-2 working days delivery time from the candidate to United CRB and 1-2 working days delivery time from United CRB to the CRB Instant, complete applications received instantly by United CRB and sent to CRB the same day. Process speed hugely increased.
Cost No registration fee then affordable admin charge per CRB application. One off registration payment of £30+VAT to use the online system. Extremely competitive admin charge per CRB disclosure.
Error Handing Errors on paper forms cannot be seen until received by united CRB (1-2 days after they are sent by candidate). These details are then corrected if possible by united CRB but this sometimes requires the forms being sent back to the applicant for the errors to be corrected. Error checking is hugely reduced. Online system contains various error warning messages so initial errors are reduced. If errors manage to remain they are seen the day of the application and can be changed the same day online and the application can be sent to the CRB the same day.
Application Tracking for client and candidate Application takes longer to complete and therefore the tracking process can seem slow and frustrating The application can be tracked by candidate and client at every stage. The system automatically informs the candidate and client of the progress of the application as it moves from stage to stage.
Confirmation Manual confirmation required, contact over the telephone or mail to confirm completion. Email confirmation instantly on completion of Online CRB disclosure process.
