Sharing a Criminal Record Check

If this option exists to the applicant, it will be presented at the Information Review page.
Note: It is important to contact the organization to confirm if they will accept a previous criminal record check clearance. An organization can decide whether it will accept a shared criminal record check result and may ask the applicant to consent to a new criminal record check.
When a Criminal Record Check is shared, no payment is required.
