Criminal record check process

Step 1
Candidates select their residency. Results are filtered to only show the fields required for that region— in accordance with the unique requirements of the country's governing body.
Step 2
After the candidate submits their information and accepts consent, their details are sent to the respective body for review.
Step 3
Check time durations vary per country, but Zinc's automated, secure process ensures the safest transfer of data with the fastest turnaround time for your criminal record check.
