Certificate of good conduct - extended

Service Description

The extended certificate of good conduct can be issued for persons who are or are to be active professionally, voluntarily or in any other way close to children or young people. It serves to protect children and young people. In the interest of effective protection of children and young people, convictions for sexual offenses are also included in the extended certificate of good conduct in the lower criminal range. It thus provides employers with far greater information about the extent to which job applicants have a criminal record for certain sexual offenses against children and adolescents or for the equally particularly relevant offenses of violation of the duty to care for or educate children and mistreatment of charges.

The extended certificate of good conduct also contains in particular:

  • First convictions of less than 90 daily fines,
