Default UK background check

Help! I'm guessing this actually being a British expat page someone should be able to help me......
I lived in the UK for two years and need to apply for my Prosecution/Conviction History under Section 21 of the Data Protection Act, 1984.
I've managed to download forms: 3019A, Metropolitan Police systems form, which is what I guess I need as I resided in London...
but what about fingerprints etc??
Is this the right form to be using?
These background checks are confusing, I'm begining to wish I had never left Australia (only joking, then I would never have met mr. blairwitch!)

Hi

I lived in UK for a year. This is the procedure I used to obtain the PCC.

1. Wrote a letter of request to


National Identification Service
Subject Access Office, Room 331
New Scotland Yard
Broadway, London SW1H OBG

2. They sent me a form. Completed the form, with copies of passport etc. and sent the fees. (No fingerprints required)

3. Within a month I got my PCC. (The max is 40 days.)

Hope this helps

Best regards
Netra

Hi, Have just done this, get the form go to local plod station with £10 wait three weeks and hey presto, police criminal record check will be returned to you. Don't bother about fingerprints, plods in UK don't provide this service.

Thanks Troublesome, the only problem is, I'm in Australia, so I have to find the correct form before I can send it off!
Do you know if that link is the right one to the correct form??????

Question Re: UK background check

I think that you have to get the from from you local police office when you were last resident in the UK. (ie: if you lived in the Thames valley, then you need a Thames valley Police application form)

Cos you live in Australia, you will also need an Australian background check will you not?

I can confirm that as you lived in London, you will need the Met Police form.

Looking at the link you provided - the correct form to use is the 'Subject Access Form' - you will also need to pay a tenner.

You only need fill out the Police National Computer form, unless you had any dealings with the Police whilst you were in London.

Thank you, you have definitely put my mind at ease, as that was exactly what I did yesterday!
Yes, I also need an Australian background check, which should hopefully be whizzing its way back to me in the post just after the new year.
