From 1 April 2011 the Department of Education ceased to fund pre-employment checks carried out by AccessNI. As a result, any applicant offered paid employment in regulated activity from this date will be required to pay £30 for the enhanced disclosure certificate (EDC). AccessNI regulations do not allow for individuals to apply directly to AccessNI for an EDC therefore applications must continue to be made through the registered body (NEELB).
Individuals should complete and return the DCAF as soon as possible.
Access NI Application Form: Standard / Enhance Disclosure - ISA Registration
Where address history extends beyond 3 addresses the following additional address sheet should be included.
The completed DCAF should be forwarded to the Board. Only original proof of identification should accompany this or where possible this should be presented to the Line Manager who will complete and sign the Identity Verification form.
Failure to return these forms immediately may result in delay in payment of salary as the Board cannot place employees on the payroll until the authorisation form has been received
