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. If you are unsure which criminal record check you need, contact us today. We’d be happy to help.
