Certificate of good conduct (VOG)

Step by step

  1. Your employer applies for the Certificate of Good Conduct (VOG) online.
  2. You complete the application form (with your DigiD).
  3. Dienst Justis will check your details.
  4. If everything is in order, you will be notified by Dienst Justis within 4 weeks.

You need a Certificate of Good Conduct (in Dutch: VOG) if you are going to be working with confidential information, vulnerable people, money or goods in your (new) job. If your employer has an eHerkenning token, and satisfies the conditions, he or she can apply online for a VOG. If your employer applied for a VOG and completed the employer's part, you will receive an e-mail with a link to where you can complete the questionnaire online. For more information about an application for a VOG, go to justis.nl, the Dienst Justis (The Integrity and Screening Agency) website.
