You may find that some police services run fingerprinting differently. The important thing is that the prints are inked and stamped or signed.

A CPIC Record Check, also known as a Name-Based Criminal Record Check, is a background check which does not use fingerprints as a search mechanism. CPIC checks use your name and date of birth to find information about convictions. CPIC Checks are not as strong as fingerprint-based criminal record checks and cannot be used for a wide variety of official processes such as immigration or travel visas. CPIC Checks are sometimes required for applying to new jobs or positions within private organizations among other reasons. If you are unsure which criminal record check you need, contact us today. We’d be happy to help.

Reliability Screening is proud to be accredited by the RCMP to submit electronic fingerprints to CCRTIS in support of criminal record checks. Reliability Screening is one of the first agencies in Canada to successfully complete this accreditation process, and is your best choice for getting a Certified Criminal Record Check while living in New Zealand.
