Identity Verification Before Criminal Records Review

Before submitting a consent form to the Criminal Records Review Program (CRRP), an organization must verify an applicant’s identity using at least one piece of primary identification and at least one piece of secondary identification. One of the pieces must be government-issued and include the applicant’s name, date of birth, signature and photo.

Note: Employers and organizations that are enrolled in the eCRC will use Electronic Identify Verification for identity verification.
