The FBI Background Check

The Hive Hive Digital Solutions 7月4日

If you have recently come to China for work or am switching employers you may be asked to provide a background check. The gold standard for Americans is the FBI Self Check, also known as the Identity History Summary (IDhS) or Departmental Order 556-73.

This  report is quickly becoming a mandatory report for Americans in model cities like Suzhou and Hangzhou, and in particular for International Schools which are pressured to show better due diligence on the teachers they are hiring in China.

Here are a few of the reasons you might want to get your own personal FBI background check:

  • To make sure your FBI record is complete, accurate, and up-to-date
  • To review or to request a correction or update
  • To challenge information on your record
  • To satisfy certain legal requirements, such as a requirement for adopting a child
  • To satisfy a requirement to live, work, study or teach abroad
  • To satisfy a requirement to travel, now required by several countries
  • Other court related matters
