People working with children and vulnerable adults can now be checked in Jersey for criminal records.
The checks will be carried out in the island by the Jersey Vetting Bureau.
It involves filling out an application form and showing proof of identity.
Kevin McKerrell, from the Jersey Vetting Bureau, said: "This marks the start of a new era for safeguarding checks for those working with vulnerable groups in the island."
