Electronic Identity Verification (EIV) prior to a criminal records review

The applicant based online service (eCRC) verifies an applicant’s identity using Electronic Identity Verification (EIV). EIV meets the RCMP’s standard for electronically verifying an applicant's identity. 

EIV uses the mobile BC Services card to verify an applicant’s identity. Individuals, who are eligible BC residents, will be required to use their BC Services Card to authenticate their identity as part of the criminal record check application process. If individuals do not meet the BC Services Card eligibility requirements, they are required to complete the manual process of submitting a paper consent form for a criminal record check to their organization.
