Why opt for a Non-UK Criminality Check?

In many UK industries, undergoing criminal record checks is a vital prerequisite; If an applicant has a history of residing abroad, obtaining a criminal record check from the country of their prior residence or employment is considered best practice. If you’re a business adhering to the Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS) for candidate screening, it is mandatory to conduct overseas checks in instances where there is clear evidence of a lack of UK residence. Applicants are required to disclose any substantial periods (lasting 6 months or more within the past 3 years) spent living abroad.

When evaluating candidates from overseas, completing a non-uk criminal record check equips you with comprehensive information, facilitating an informed decision-making process. This not only ensures compliance but also serves as a testament to your commitment to maintaining rigorous standards, demonstrating to your clients that you approach compliance with the utmost seriousness.
