A lot of aviation industry is located in california.
If you apply for work in California, here is a detailed description of what a California background check can and cannot do. It covers things like rap sheet, arrest record, ect.


For example, in California the background check cannot include arrest records, unless it was followed by a conviction. California companies cannot check your medical records unless they have already made you a job offer.

The point is that each state and country have a lot of peculiar differences in their laws. So for the UK, you would do well to research the UK privacy and background check laws.

In the UK, criminal background checks are done through the Criminal Records Bureau. But sometimes that misses criminal information, even about child molesters, as was shown in the Soham trial, in 2003.

Here is a typical list of pre-employment information gathered by a big company in the UK.

Personal Information
Name
Gender
Address
Email address
Phone/Fax number
Education and skills
Financial information
Racial or ethnic origin
Health/Medical data
Criminal Background check where necessary and legally permitted

Business Information
Employer
Job title
Email address
Phone/Fax #
Personal details

This is what British Airways says about their requirements:
\"Employees who work with children and/or vulnerable adults, and those who require a permanent restricted zone ('Airside') security pass, are legally required to produce a satisfactory criminal record check.\"

This describes UK law:
Legislation controlling access to restricted zones at all UK airports (known as 'airside access'), requires British Airways to carry out additional background checks for all new applications for a permanent restricted zone 'Airside' security pass, including references covering the last five years of your employment and a criminal record check. In addition, in compliance with existing legislation, for these roles British Airways is required to ascertain your suitability to work with or be in sole charge of children and/or vulnerable adults.

To comply with the above, you are required to successfully complete a Criminal Record Check at Enhanced Disclosure level before you can commence employment with British Airways. This is in addition to obtaining references covering the last five years of your employment. The Disclosure can be obtained from the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and will be checked against disqualifying criteria.

As a new entrant into the company, you may be required to pay for your Enhanced Disclosure. For further information see the CRB website at www.crb.gov.uk/
