An International Child Protection Certificate - a joint initiative between ACRO and the National Crime Agency - is issued following a criminal records check against UK police and intelligence databases, and can be requested by any employer who works with children, and whose employment decisions are not made in the UK.

It can help protect children from UK nationals, or those who have previously lived in the UK, seeking to gain access to children through employment or voluntary roles for the purpose of harming them.
