Employee screening

An employee screening is a standard part of the DSI certification procedure. That applies to new certification requests, changes to your current certification, and conversion to passive registration. DSI is responsible for conducting the Screening. You can request a screening via MijnDSI. For more information about the screening process and the required documents, please visit this page.

Which documents do we need for your request?

  • Copy of a valid passport/proof of identification
  • DUO-transcript for your highest completed degree programme (if the transcript is not available via DUO, please submit a copy of the original diploma)
  • Certificate of Good Conduct (VOG). DSI offers the option of requesting a VOG digitally during the request process.
  • Employer’s statement(s) drawn up by DSI and signed by an authorised person, such as a (former) supervisor or HR manager. This can be arranged digitally during the request process, so we recommend that you have the authorised signatories’ e-mail addresses on hand before you begin the request process.
  • Your CV can help fill in the employment history and job titles.
  • Collect the e-mail addresses for your former supervisors in advance, to facilitate the signatures of the required employer’s statements. DSI will draw up these statements as part of the request process.
