There has been a significant increase in the number of criminal record checks that require an apostille over recent years. As more UK citizens relocate abroad or look for employment in overseas countries there has been a greater requirement for the apostille to be used on background checks.
Organisations, companies, schools and other bodies outside the UK will often request the apostille for criminal record checks as part of their vetting criteria. If you do not have an apostille on a recently produced criminal record check then the document may not be accepted.
Our apostille service will ensure that your criminal record background check is correctly legalised for use outside of the UK so that it will be accepted in an official capacity.

There are many different versions of criminal record checks that can be submitted. The following list is a selection of documents we regularly process-
- DBS documents
- Basic or Enhanced Disclosures
- Disclosure Scotland
- Access Northern Ireland
- NPCC - ACPO – ACRO –
- Police Letters
- Subject Access Reports
This list is provided as a sample only. We can accept all forms of UK issued background checks.
Many people assume there is one Criminal Records Bureau, often referred to as CRB. This is incorrect. Back ground checks are provided by the police, the government through the Disclosure Barring Service, or by service providers like Disclosure Scotland. You will need to contact one of these services directly to obtain your own document. We cannot order these for you.
