How do International Submissions work?


Reliability Screening Solutions Inc. (RSSI) provides Canadian Criminal Background checks to individuals all over the world. The process can be complicated and time-consuming if you are not familiar, and each country can have its own set of rules and guidelines. When you enlist our services, you can be sure that what we provide will satisfy your needs, all within an industry-leading turnaround time.

While each applicant receives detailed instructions tailored to their specific order, there are commonalities across all orders. If an order is placed for a Fingerprint-based RCMP Certified criminal record check, the applicant must provide a set original hard copy fingerprints taken by their local law enforcement or foreign equivalent (detailed requirements are provided via email.) Many police and private fingerprinting agencies have the ability to capture fingerprints digitally and create hard copies via a certified printer.  This service is as good, or better, than ink.  RSSI can accept fingerprint forms from any country in the world. Further requirements include a scanned copy of two pieces of Government Issued ID must be provided (list of acceptable ID is provided via email.) If the applicant would like their image to appear on the resulting certificate, a passport-sized photo must be provided.

Each applicant’s instructional email will include shipping information for the facility that will be completing their submission. Required documents must be mailed to the appropriate address for processing.

While many orders are similar, specific circumstances do arise often. The process described above can serve as a general guideline, but each applicant is urged to refer to their specific instructions to ensure their order is completed as quickly as possible.
