Once completed and submitted you are required to provide proof of identity to your County FA Verifier Officer in support of your application.

The County FA Verifier will verify your original Identity Documents (ID) and submit the application to The FA DBS where the application will be validated before progressing to the DBS for further processing. Upon completion, the DBS will issue you with a copy of the DBS Disclosure. The FA DBS will update their records and forward the Disclosure result to The FA.
