We are currently able to support certain individuals needing to have their FA DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) verified with face-to-face appointments.
These slots are available at the County Office in Chelmsford for referees, Club Welfare Officers and, in certain cases, coaches. Any coach who is looking to renew or apply for their first check must approach the Club Welfare Officer of their club initially.
It is important to remember that the application form must be completed online prior to the verification appointment, and the correct identification documents are produced on the day (original documents only). Due to ongoing health and safety requirements, and in-line with Covid-19 guidelines, these appointments are for DBS verification only.
Once you’ve completed your DBS application, please follow the link below to book a verification slot. Make sure you familiarise yourself with the contents, included in the booking. If you have any questions, contact the relevant member of Essex County FA staff. Should Government policy or guidance change, affecting these arrangements, any updates will be posted on this website.
Please Note: Appointments can only be booked within one week of the selected verification date.
