Individuals can apply for their own check.
Once you begin your application you will receive an email to activate your application.
When you have done this, you will receive a second email to set your password for your account.
This password, combined with your username, will allow you to begin your application.
Once an organisation has started an online application on your behalf, the Screening Unit will send you an email so you can complete it.
If you don’t receive an email, contact the organisation to check they’ve started your application before you contact the Screening Unit.
To complete the application, you'll need to confirm your identity.
Sole-traders, contractors and self-employed people are considered businesses and need to register as an organisation before starting an application.
