Apply online for a basic check

Anyone can apply for a basic check. It discloses unspent convictions only. A basic check is not suitable for roles working with children or vulnerable adults.

Before you start

You don't need an online account with AccessNI to apply for a basic check, but you will need:

  • your address or addresses for the last five years
  • your National Insurance number
  • three forms of ID (one must be photographic)
  • a valid debit or credit card

To complete this application you must send AccessNI proof of your identity within 14 days. If you fail to do this your application will not be processed and you will need to reapply.  Get more information on how to do this and the accepted forms of ID.
