how can an individual apply for DBS / CRB certificate?

all agencies are requesting DBS checks from interpreters prior to registration,but all DBS / CRB provider companies that I've found online seem to accept applications from employer and not directly from an individual.
some of them ask for employers name in the beginning of the form.
so how does it work exactly?

I'm going to register with few agencies,who's name should I put in the CRB check application?
