Netherlands Certificate of Good Conduct

Police Certificates are not issued in the Netherlands, instead Police will issue a Verklaring Omtrent Gedrag (VOG) or what is called a Certificate of Good Conduct. In order to apply for the Certificate an application must be submitted to the local council in the town the applicant resided most recently in the Netherlands. If the individual left the Netherlands prior to 1994 or was not registered in the population register, it is advised that the applicant send their application directly to the Centraal Orgaan Verklaringen Omtret Gedrag (COVOG).

It typically takes around 2-3 weeks for the Certificate to be issued. The COVOG will check the JDS Criminal Records System. They may also consult police files, Public Prosecution Service or probation service for additional information.

An application for the Certificate of Good Conduct can be found here. The Certificate of Good Conduct is issued in the Dutch language however, a summary in English is provided at the bottom of the certificate as well.

Netherlands Credit Checks

To obtain a comprehensive credit check, applicants should apply directly through the Bureau Krediet Registratie (BKR). Applications can be found here or at banks in the Netherlands. It will take around 6 weeks to obtain the report.

Experian also holds a database that contains limited credit information. The information is mainly from bailiffs and cell phone providers and therefore as comprehensive.

Netherlands Court Records

Criminal records are not available from Dutch courts as they do not release information on criminal records. There are 19 District Courts in the Netherlands each have up to have sectors which include civil law, criminal law, administrative law and sub-district law sectors. They are also responsible for the decisions made on insolvency (bankruptcy, moratorium and deb restructuring).

 

Netherlands Privacy laws & Regulations

The Dutch Personal Data Protection Act went into effect in September 2001. The College Bescherming Persoonsgegevens (CBP) oversees data law compliance. The Act requires that you have consent prior to collecting information on a subject, therefore it is important to have a signed consent form from the applicant prior to conducting a background check.

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.
