AccessNI is a criminal history disclosure service in Northern Ireland. By law some employers must check your criminal history before they recruit. When asked by these employers, AccessNI supplies criminal history information about job applicants, volunteers and employees.
An AccessNI check is a criminal history record check which provides different levels of information about an individual.
There are three levels of check:
A check will inform an employer if you have been convicted of a criminal offence.
ARC is registered as an umbrella body with Access NI and is able to make applications on behalf of unregistered organisations. There are a number of reasons why you may consider using the ARC NI Disclosure Service* including if your organisation is small or you require only a small number of checks in the year.
It is important to note that Access NI Checks are processed in the ARC England office only. Please do not send sensitive documentation to the Northern Ireland Office by post or email.
