A criminal history check is also known as a disclosure. AccessNI searches your details against UK criminal records and police information. These searches may disclose any criminal history to certain employers and organisations. AccessNI produces a disclosure certificate for every check.
Vetting checks are done through AccessNI and are required for any adult and young people aged 16/17 years working with or responsible for young people in Regulated Activity.
Ulster Hockey Vetting Policy (March 2019) is the latest update to incorporate any changes and updates in vetting procedures. Access Ni applications are processed through an online system and require a paper form to validate your identification. This is a legal requirement. Parent/Guardian consent is required for applicants aged 16 or 17 years old.
The application forms also contain instructions for completion so read through carefully before applying to make sure you have all the correct information to hand and know the process before you proceed.
An AccessNI check is a criminal history record check which provides different levels of information about an individual. There are three levels of check:
1. A basic check contains details of all convictions considered to be unspent, or states that no convictions were found
2. A standard check contains details of all spent and unspent convictions and relevant cautions
3. An enhanced check contains the same information as a standard check as well as a check of police records held locally and, for positions working with children and vulnerable adults, may include information held by the Disclosure and Barring Service
