German Police Certificate

A Certificate of Good Standing (also known as a Certificate of Good Conduct) can be obtained through the German Police. The Certificate will only be issued to the subject themselves. The Certificate provides information on criminal convictions from the Central Registry but will not provide information on the following types of offenses.

  • Non-conviction information
  • Youth offender imprisonments or detentions (individuals under the age of 21)
  • Offenses over 5 years old
  • Convictions that have resulted in imprisonment that does not exceed two years when the individual is placed on provisional discharge
  •    for some types of drug related charges
  • Convictions that have resulted in imprisonment that does not exceed 3 months or involving penalties that do not exceed 90 day’s income.

The information contained in the Central Registry is regulated by the Central Registry Act.

Individuals living in Germany can complete an application for the Certificate at the Residents Registration Office or at their local police station. The individual's identity will be confirmed during the time the application is file. A third party is not able to obtain the Certificate on the individual's behalf.

Individuals living outside of Germany can provide confirmation of their identity and signature to a German Consular or Embassy. Individuals would be asked to visit the office in person or send their personal details including certified copy of their personal ID including their own signature, name, date of birth, address, place of birth and nationality to The Federal Central Register. For more information on this process please visit their website directly.

 

German Privacy laws & Regulations

Personal data in Germany is regulated by The Federal Data Protection Act and supported at the federal level through the Telecommunications Act. This law states that when collecting information on an applicant for employment purposes it must be collected directly from the applicant themselves.  If you are collecting information on an applicant from a third party, you must have prior consent from the applicant to do so.  Employers must only ask questions and collect information that significantly relates to the position.

Data Protection restrictions are in place for countries within the European Union (EU) that do not allow for the transfer of data to countries outside of the European Union. Due to this restriction the Safe Harbor was created. When a company becomes Safe Harbor certified they agree and certify that they will meet the privacy and data protection requirements set forth by the Safe Harbor Directive. Info Cubic is Safe Harbor certified, which allows us to obtain information from the EU.
