International Criminal Records Checks
Accessing criminal record information overseas
Very few countries facilitate access to criminal record information via a third party in the way that the Scottish Criminal Records Office (SCRO) and Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) do in the UK. In most instances CRC data can only be obtained via 'subject access request (SAR)' under relevant data protection legislation. Vero can advise on the criminal checks process for individual countries, including the level of subject and employer involvement.
Fully documented procedures
Country by country we have documented the different approaches required. International
CRC procedures, documents and resources are centrally stored in our unique in-house
knowledge management system VeroPoint. By centralising this crucial data we are
able to offer our clients quick and easy access to detailed and up to date information
on international criminal record checks overseas: from application forms to turnaround
times and issuing bodies to associated costs.
