The Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) is consulting on its proposals to increase disclosure fees.
It is inviting views on increasing the fees and also introducing a payment for the Protection of Vulnerable Adults check, which is currently free of charge.
The CRB is self-funding and is operating at a deficit and will continue to so unless fees are increased.
The increase will also help pay for further improvements to its service, the CRB said.
The consultation can be downloaded from the CRB website and will close on 2 February.
