What does it check?

The Standard level check (for individuals in Northern Ireland) provides details on all unspent and spent convictions, adult and juvenile cautions, informed warnings and other non-court disposals.

This check is available only for certain job roles, duties, positions and licences, as outlined in the Rehabilitation of Offenders (NI) Order 1978. Some old and minor convictions and non-court disposals on a criminal record may not be disclosed. Fixed penalty tickets and parking fines will not be included in a Standard check.
