Supplementary note by the Home Office
CRIMINAL RECORDS BUREAU
I am writing at the request of the Minister,
Charles Clarke, to let the Committee know that he has today made
an announcement regarding fees for registration with the CRB.
You will recall that an applicant for one of
the two highest levels of DisclosureStandard or Enhancedmust
be countersigned by a person registered with the Bureau for that
purpose. This will often be the employer (or a voluntary organisation).
The Minister has announced that it is planned
to make a one-off charge of £300 for registration, plus a
fee of £5 per individual countersignatory nominated by the
registered person thereafter. Regulations will be laid accordingly.
I attach a copy of the text for information.
It remains the case that no announcement has
yet been made as regards the fee for the disclosures themselves.
