What does it check?
This check establishes if an individual has a criminal record.
This check provides what is referred to as a Certificate of Convictions or Certificado de Antecedentes Penales.
The certificate contains the following information:
• Full name
• Date of application
• Place of birth
• Date of birth
• Identity number
• Criminal history of the individual (if applicable)
All categories of criminal convictions are listed on the criminal record certificate. Expired convictions will also appear unless the subject has requested the cancellation of these.
Expiry periods vary according to the type of punishment and range from between 6 months (for minor offences) to 5 years (for serious offences) provided no further offence has been committed.
