                CRB Checks
Rugby Football Union (RFU) Checks
• A referee will not be appointed to U18
  fixtures unless he/she is either in
  possession of a disclosure certificate
  issued by the RFU or is going through the
  process of being checked.

                   CRB Checks (2)
Checks through other Organisations
• A referee will not be appointed to U18 fixtures unless he/she is in
  possession of a disclosure certificate from another organisation that has
  been issued within the past twelve months. However, in this case, Chris
  Rawlings at the RFU will still require the following:
   – A photocopy of the disclosure certificate, to include full name and
      address, date of birth, date of certificate issue and disclosure number
   – Countersignitory name and full address of registered body
   – A signed letter from the referee concerned, indicating the registered
      body’s permission to confirm details relating to the disclosure issued by
      the CRB
   – Please note that, if the certificate was issued over twelve months ago, it
      will need to be renewed.
• Rather than go through the process of asking the other organisation to
  release the necessary information, the referee may, however, choose simply
  to complete an additional form through the RFU.

            CRB Checks (3)
Expired CRB Checks
• Disclosure certificates are valid only for a
  period of three years, after which time the
  referee will need to complete a new
  application form. To facilitate this process, the
  relevant documentation will be sent to the
  referee direct from Twickenham; the relevant
  Society Officer will need only verify Section
  X before returning the form to Twickenham.

              CRB Checks (4)
Provision of the Disclosure Number
• Should you require confirmation that a referee has
  undergone a CRB check, he/she should ideally
  provide a photocopy of the disclosure certificate (for
  example, if a referee moves Society). However,
  provided the check has been carried out through the
  RFU, it is satisfactory for him/her to only provide the
  disclosure number. Its validity can then be confirmed
  by Chris Rawlings at chrisrawlings@rfu.com
• Please note that this does not apply to disclosure
  numbers issued by other organisations.
