VOG check (certificate of conduct)

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

Apply easily and quickly for the certificate of conduct with Validata

Requesting a Dutch certificate of conduct can be done quick and conveniently with Validata. With a certificate of conduct, a (potential) employee can prove that he or she has not committed any criminal offenses that could pose a risk to their future position and the organisation.

In certain sectors it is obliged by the law to have a recent certificate of conduct. For example, in the financial, education, health care, and child care sector. However, as an employer, you can also ask for a certificate of conduct if it is not obligated by law.

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 Justis will send an email with specific instructions for the online application of a certificate of conduct.

The application for a certificate of conduct handled by Justis

The application for a certificate of conduct can be completed digitally via the Justis 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 Justis, it takes two weeks on average for the document to be delivered by post. Justis 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.

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).
