Criminal Checks​

Our international criminal background checks for employers provide some of the most robust multinational coverage possible by offering a flexible mix of available and permissible searches in countries where candidates have lived and worked.

Robust Multinational Coverage

The top reasons employers worldwide perform criminal background checks are simple: enhanced workplace safety and employee security.  Knowing in advance if a candidate has a violent, threatening or high-risk criminal history, helps employers make stronger hiring decisions based on their organizational risk tolerance, job-specific requirements, industry regulations and other factors. Yet, when it comes to the process of actually performing criminal searches in other countries outside of your location, things get more complicated. This is where First Advantage can help.

Our International Criminal History Checks provide some of the most expansive, robust multinational criminal record coverage possible by offering a flexible mix of available and permissible searches in countries where candidates have lived and worked. Our extensive global footprint, spanning 200+ countries and territories, gives employers around the world the localized, in-country experience and relationships they trust to quickly deliver the most reliable, accurate and comprehensive criminal record information possible.

In China, the check is conducted as a name search on the national’s online platform managed by the Supreme People’s Court of P.R.C. for criminal conviction sentences. These database contains national wide court writs issued from 1996 and records from national bribery record archives issued by various governments to identify known individuals.

We have done the research, formed the localized relationships and established a streamlined, centralized criminal record fulfillment process.
