FOR LEGAL PERSONS

A legal person can request the release of information from the Criminal Records Database in order to perform a background check, for which an application must be submitted to RIK.

The state fee can be paid by bank transfer – in case of a request from an institution, this cannot be done in the e-File system (information about the payment of state fee).

The payment of state fee does not apply to persons provided in clauses 19 (1) 2)–11) of the Criminal Records Database Act based on subsection 23 (6) of the Criminal Records Database Act, the payment of state fee for issuing data from the archives does not apply to persons provided in clauses 20 (1) 3)–11) and 13) of the Criminal Records Database Act.
For example, the payment of state fee does not apply:

  • to an employer – upon verifying the compliance to law when employing a person or taking a person into service (subsection 23 (1) of the Security Act, clauses 16 (2) 2), 3), etc. of the Explosive Substances Act, clauses 15 1), 2) of the Civil Service Act);
  • to a governmental authority or a local government authority – upon performing the duties established by law or legislation provided by law;
  • upon verifying the compliance to law in case of employing a person working with minors within the meaning of the Child Protection Act, taking them into service, alternative service, voluntary activity, or providing a person with an activity licence upon providing labour market services or engaging in traineeship or working with children (subsections 20 (1)–(3) of the Child Protection Act).

The application on the basis for exemption from the state fee should include the legal basis for making a query and a reference to legislation. Upon failure to indicate the legal basis, it is required to pay the state fee, which is a prerequisite for accepting the application for processing.
