Those who have had their criminal record cleared or modified by the court can submit a certified copy of their court order (or similar certified government documentation) along with a completed update request form to the NEDC. Upon receipt of the request and document, the NEDC will have one of its specialists verify the authenticity.
Use our simple secure online submission form to get started. We'll ask you for basic contact information, information to verify your identity, details about your conviction and expungement and payment information.
Once authenticated, participating criminal background check companies are notified to remove the required information. Our verification process dramatically reduces the time it would normally take background check companies to update their records and reduces the chances that a cleared or modified record could be inaccurately reported.
It typically takes 30 days for the NEDC specialist to verify the authenticity of the documents and to transmit them to the background check companies. That time can be reduced to 10 business days for an additional fee.
