What's in it for you?


Criminal record checks is a risk management tool that allows you to proactively combat workplace crimes and unlawful conduct before they occur.


Reduce the risk to other members of staff and clients by ensuring that the people you hire pose minimal risk to those around them.


Avoid the pitfalls of potential negative influences among staff. A harmonious working environment lends itself to better performance and a healthier bottom line.

While it cannot be said that anyone with a criminal record is necessarily a business risk, the fact remains that record-free employees reduce the risk of loss or conflict within the workplace. After all, we're living in a time of rising commercial / workplace theft, a time in which individuals increasingly falsify personal documentation and other credentials to get the job.

Here are a few benefits of a criminal record check:

  • Reduce the potential of workplace theft / conflict
  • Reduced risk of negligent hiring legal proceedings
  • Better candidates often make better employees
  • Reduce the potential of employee misconduct
  • Improved safety of existing employees

Where are you located?

Use the map at the bottom of this page and find the CSI Africa partner closest to your physical location. This is necessary because criminal record checks require a recent copy of your fingerprints, and you'll have to visit in person so that your fingerprints can be taken.

Official documentation

A certified copy of your South African Identity Document or Passport will be required. Copies of the relevant document can also be made at any of our partners' premises. You'll also need to complete these forms, which can be done at home to save time.

Wait 48 hours

Results are received within 48 hours, or two working days, from the day your request is submitted. Weekends and public holidays should be taken into account.

When you get your results

Should we receive a notice that a criminal record does exist in your name, you may apply for criminal record expungement if:

  • The record has been in existence for at least a decade (10 years or more) and there has been no subsequent conviction(s)
  • The offence for which you were convicted was of a trivial nature, such as petty theft, shoplifting, fraud, certain politically motivated crimes and crimes in respect of which the punishment is now unconstitutional. Convictions of crimes of a serious nature, such as murder, rape and other sexual offences, armed robbery, and assault with the intention to do serious bodily harm, do not qualify for criminal record expungement
  • You were given the option of paying a fine (R20,000 or less)
  • You were advised that paying a fine would not result in a criminal record, but have subsequently discovered the existence of your criminal record
