How do I interpret the results of a basic or enhanced criminal record check?

 

BASIC Criminal Record Check:

The following is always performed for both basic and enhanced criminal record checks.

The two additional options that are included for enhanced criminal record checks will be identified near the bottom of this tutorial. 


1. Clear/Negative Response:

Based solely on the name(s) and date of birth provided and the criminal record information declared by the applicant, a search of the RCMP National Repository of Criminal Records did not identify any records with the name(s) and date of birth of the applicant.

Positive identification that a criminal record does or does not exist at the RCMP National Repository of Criminal Records can only be confirmed by fingerprint comparison. Delays do exist between a conviction being rendered in court, and the details being accessible on the RCMP National Repository of Criminal Records. Not all offences are reported to the RCMP National Repository of Criminal Records.

 

2. Unclear/Incomplete Response:

Based solely on the name(s) and date of birth provided and the criminal record information declared by the applicant, a search of the RCMP National Repository of Criminal Records could not be completed.

Positive identification that a criminal record does or does not exist requires the applicant to submit fingerprints to the RCMP National Repository of Criminal Records by an authorized police service or accredited private fingerprinting company. Delays do exist between a conviction being rendered in court, and the details being accessible on the RCMP National Repository of Criminal Records. Not all offences are reported to the RCMP National Repository of Criminal Records.

 

3. Confirmation of Criminal Record Response:

Based solely on the name(s) and date of birth provided and the criminal record information declared by the applicant, a search of the RCMP National Repository of Criminal Records has resulted in a possible match to a registered criminal record.

Positive identification that a criminal record does or does not exist at the RCMP National Repository of Criminal Records can only be confirmed by fingerprint comparison. As such, the criminal record information declared by the applicant does not constitute a Certified Criminal Record by the RCMP. Delays do exist between a conviction being rendered in court, and the details being accessible on the RCMP National Repository of Criminal Records. Notall offences are reported to the RCMP National Repository of Criminal Records.

 

ENHANCED Criminal Record Check:

Includes the above AND the following two options.

 

4. Clear/Negative:

Based solely on name(s) and date of birth provided, NO information was revealed.

 

5. Additional Check Recommended:

Based solely on name(s) and date of birth provided, it is recommended that the applicant obtain a Police Information Check at their local police service.

The “Error” result is reserved for any candidate files that cannot be completed due to inconsistent or missing information, or any youth files. Any files that are marked with error are reviewed by our Customer Success Team and they will reach out to the candidate to edit any fields to allow for re-processing if applicable.
