Can the applicant use BCS to submit their own background check to BCCU?

No. Only authorized entities may submit background check requests to BCCU.  However, the applicant will be able to enter their information online in addition to using a paper copy of the form. If the Applicant has a valid email address, they will have the option to complete an online form and sign it using an electronic signature process.  The applicant will then notify the authorized entity who requested the background check that their form is complete and provide them with their unique identification number tied to their background check information online. The entity will retrieve the applicant’s information using that unique identifying number and submit the complete background check request using the Background Check System (BCS).
