Ebulk is a system which allows applicants to complete their CRB application completely online. Once the form is completed and checked by Personnel Checks, it is submitted using Ebulk via a secure encrypted connection directly to the Criminal Record Bureau. Ebulk reduces errors by validating data as soon as it’s entered and speeds up the whole CRB process from start to end.
Ebulk is extremely secure. The system had to pass strict testing phases conducted by the Criminal Record Bureau and the Ministry of Justice before it was authorised to be used. All the data is firstly encrypted by Ebulk and sent securely to the Criminal Record Bureau’s server, we then we receive the CRB results in the same format.
Ebulk has been designed with the user in mind. You are given your own login details for our online portal and each section of the application is done in stages with hints and tips along the way. The system will tell you if something has been entered incorrectly or in the wrong format. We also have a dedicated Ebulk support team who are available to answer your questions at any time.
It takes an average of 30 minutes for the applicant to complete their section of the CRB application form using Ebulk and around 15 minutes for the ID verifier to complete the other part of the form.
A Standard CRB Check can be returned within 24 hours using Ebulk rather than an average of 10 days when using a paper based system.
An Enhanced CRB disclosure can be returned within 4 to 5 days using Ebulk rather than 14 days which is the average turnaround time for a paper based system.
