This on-line facility will give an indication on whether you may or may not meet our criminality criteria in order to obtain an SIA licence.

This process cannot give you an indication of your likely eligibility if you have received a sentence of life imprisonment, or have been detained because of mental health problems, or have received convictions overseas. If these circumstances apply you will not necessarily be ineligible for a licence, but we shall need to give special consideration to your case, which we cannot do until we have received your application.

You will be asked to enter information about all cautions, warnings and convictions you may have. You will remain anonymous throughout the process.

The resulting indicator is based entirely on the information that you have entered as the user and is not a guaranteed outcome of the actual criminality check that the SIA will conduct in conjunction with the Criminal Records Bureau on each licence applicant, at the time of application.
