Screening and Testing
Criminal Fingerprint Screening
The South African Police Service (SAPS) discontinued the use of names and ID clearance checks for criminal records. The only legal avenue to do a criminal screening of a person is through AFIS, the SAPS Automated Fingerprint Identification System. This system uses fingerprint scanners to capture digital fingerprints.
AFISwitch is South Africa's sole provider to the private sector of automated criminal record checks. AFISwitch interfaces with SAPS Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) to determine the criminal background status of a person.
AFISwitch provides unrivalled accuracy and speed over conventional paper-based services, with a turnaround time of approximately 48 hours.
In order to capture fingerprints electronically, agents must be enrolled with the SAPS AFIS system and that requires certification which in turn requires training. Only persons with no criminal convictions and a clear credit record can be trained.
Express Employment Professionals is certified for AFIS screening.
AFISwitch allows companies to obtain background checks on job applicants and existing employees.
