A Criminal Record Check Record Check, also known as a Name-Based Criminal Record Check, is a background check which does not use fingerprints as a search mechanism. Criminal Record Check checks use your name and date of birth to find information about convictions. Criminal Record Checks are not as strong as fingerprint-based criminal record checks and cannot be used for a wide variety of official processes such as immigration or travel visas. Criminal Record Checks are sometimes required for applying to new jobs or positions within private organizations among other reasons.
