  3. I have kind of been discussing this under another thread on the GA board, but thought I would start a proper draft here before launching into the real world (so to speak). Basically the idea is for an international version of the criminal records background check. When Calladanian citizens apply for certain jobs (working with children, especially where they will be potentially left alone with those children, working in classified or high security jobs and so forth) they are required to undergo additional background checks - checks that require information from the ORC (Office of Records - Criminal). This is to ensure that - for example - a child molester can't simply move from District 1 to District 21 and get a new address in order to escape their past. The records provided are very, very strictly controlled - they only include criminal convictions for certain crimes (crimes that would be relevant and make them a danger to either children, or untrustworthy to work in security related jobs) and do not include convictions that are spent or convictions for crimes committed as minors (except under very special circumstances). I won't bore you with a full list, but examples include murder, child abuse, rape, computer hacking (viruses, malware), terrorism with bloodshed and sexual assault. (The sexual related crimes are only included when the job relates to working with children, but they are reported for both men and women). However, given that the world is getting smaller, it is not beyond reason that said child molester could move from one country to another. And while ORC has the records of every citizen in Calladan, it doesn't have any records outside of Calladan because it is a Calladan government department and other government object to us hacking into their record systems So what I am proposing is a mutual exchange of these records. That every country is required so set up a version of ORC (if they don't already have one) and that when requests come in from other WA member nations, they respond to the request and send the required information back on the subject of the request or they provide a compelling reason as to why they can not send the required information (eg - the subject of the request is not a citizen). The cost of the request will be paid by the nation that is making it - the nation that is fulfilling it will bill the requesting nation (at an agreed rate) once the request is fulfilled or rejected. (There will be an initial outlay for the cost of ORC - but most nations might have one of these already?) I realise there will be some objections under National Sovereignty - "Can you explain to me what right does the Calladan government have to demand information about one of my former citizens?" - or possibly objections because they are former citizens - "Why should we care what a former citizen of ours is doing once they have emigrated from our country? They're in your country now, they're your problem" but the one thing I think I CAN argue is that this IS an international topic, rather than a national one, because it does cover the interaction between two countries and an information exchange between the two. Anyway.... --xx--xx-- Title : International Background Check Protocols Category/Strength : (Not sure yet - this is the part I usually have the most trouble with) Noting that candidates for certain jobs require extra checks into their backgrounds, to ensure they are suitable for the positions, Noting that these checks into any criminal convictions that the candidate might have, Aware that the world is smaller than it once was, and that people can travel from one country to another relatively easily, Noting that this potentially makes complete background checks harder, as a candidate might move from country to country, Hoping that all nations would like their checks to be as complete as possible, The WA hereby :- 1. Creates The MACE Protocols (defined below) for the exchange of information between member nations; 2. Requires that member nations respond in a timely fashion to MACE requests from other member nations; a - the response must either be to provide the information, or an acceptable reason as to why the information was not provided. 3. Requires that the costs of a MACE request are paid by the requesting nation, not the nation carrying out the request; 4. Suggests the office dealing with the requests be given the most amusing name possible (eg Office of Records - Criminal, Department of Interior Criminal Kith, Files Uniting National Naughty Yokels) The MACE (Mutual Assistance on Checks for Employment) Protocols 1. Information can only pertain to a single citizen. 2. Information can only pertain to criminal convictions :- a - these convictions must be non-spent convictions; b - these convictions must be from when the citizen is an adult (if there is a conflict of ages of consent between nations, the youngest applies); c - if the requesting nation defines something as a crime that is not a crime in the nation fulfilling the request, it is ignored; d - if the nation fulfilling the request has more convictions under their MACE protocols, they can optionally provide them in the request fulfilment. 3. A MACE request can only be made by the government. It can not come directly from the employer. 4. Allow for limited bio-metric information to be included in the request (finger prints, hair colour, eye colour, height, weight, picture of face, full body picture) to take account of the face the citizen might have changed their name. --xx--xx-- That's about all I can think of at the minute. I am pretty sure I have probably missed something, but - since I have missed it, I don't know what it is I REALLY want to include the ability to set an exchange program with non-member nations (optional and not controlled) but I realise that will get me spanked six ways through Sunday, so I will leave it for now
