It’s a Small World!
These days, we’re as likely to check criminal records or verify a college degree on the other side of the planet, as we are contacting a former employer just across town.
EIS can check for or verify criminal records, credit, employment history, education, licensing and more, in over 250 countries and territories. At the core of our global capabilities, is a network of experienced record retrieval agents on the ground performing hands-on record checks throughout the world. Criminal records are searched at the appropriate courthouse, police station or other official government designated records repository. Other verifications such as education and employment are performed via telephone, e-mail or Fax correspondence.
Industry Notes: When ordering foreign country criminal record search, allow for more turnaround time just to be on the safe side. And be aware, each country, province, territory or court jurisdiction may have varying record keeping practices and reporting policies. Some criminal records may be maintained at a city, district or provincial level, as opposed to a single, country-wide record repository. If you currently use international criminal record search services, your background company should report to you exactly what the parameters, scope and breadth of the specific record search was. Simply reporting “Clear” doesn’t begin to give you the complete picture.
Your EIS client services representative will be happy to further discuss international record search services and answer any questions you may have. Just give us a call or connect here.
