BCCMA Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)

Aligned to our policy to safeguard children and vulnerable adults, the BCCMA offers a DBS checking service to members who are engaged in frequent or regular contact with children and vulnerable adults in their martial arts setting. The service will enable members to obtain a DBS enhanced check.

BCCMA members can register for the service at: https://membermojo.co.uk/scima

You can register and then arrange for your identification documents to be validated by the BCCMA verification officers either by post or at the DBS Checking Desk at national events.

You will need to bring certain forms of identification which meet the DBS requirements which are provided in our Safeguarding Update May 2018.

If you believe that a child or vulnerable adult is at immediate risk of harm or abuse or requires medical attention, then dial 999 and contact the emergency services and follow any advice given.

As soon as possible, but within 24 hours, follow the recording and reporting steps set out in the BCCMA Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy.
