VOG-check (certificate of conduct)

Validata can make the application for a certificate of conduct simple and reliable through its software.

Request a VOG-check: via the municipality or online?

A (potential) employee can apply for a Dutch certificate of conduct through the municipality. Validata will then send a form via email within which the application can t be submitted. If a (potential) employee has DigiD, both Validata and the Justis Service will send an email with specific instructions for the online application ofa certificate of conduct.

The application for a certificate of conduct handled by Justis Service

The application for a certificate of conduct can be completed digitally via the Justis Service website. With a personal DigID and the instructions from the previously received email, a (potential) employee can apply for the certificate of conduct online. Quick and conveniently!

How long does the application and receipt take?

After applying for a certificate of conduct at the Justis Service, it takes two weeks on average for the document to be delivered by post. Justis Service sends the certificate to the home address of the (potential) employee. They must then make a scan or photo of the document and upload it to their personal account in Validata’s online system. To make this action user-friendly for (potential) employees and to speed up this process, the photo can be taken directly via Validata’s mobile application Valluga, after which it directly appears in the personal account.

Request a VOG-check for a screening report

Applying for a certificate of conduct – both through the municipality and digitally – generally takes a long time. In order not to delay the screening process, Validata creates a preliminary version of the screening report whilst waiting for the certificate. All results from other checks from the profile are shown in this report, but without the VOG-check. Once this document has been received by post and uploaded by the (potential) employee to their account, the document is added to the final screening report.

Certificate of conduct application: the responsibility of the (potential) employee

Although Validata assists in applying for a certificate of conduct, the (potential) employee remains responsible for completing the procedure. Therefore, it is important to encourage cooperation and to complete the steps in the application on time. Should there be a delay, Validata will continue to remind the (potential) employee to quickly complete the application.

Please note: The (potential) employee is often responsible to cover the costs for a VOG-check (certificate of conduct).
