Taking into account previous convictions

The Judicial Documentation System (Justitieel Documentatiesysteem - JDS) records all serious crimes and a large number of less serious offences relating to natural and legal persons, as provided for in the Judicial Data and Criminal Records Act (Wet justitiële en strafvorderlijke gegevens - Wjsg). Because of the confidential nature of such judicial data, the Wjsg adopts a ‘restrictive’ approach to the registration and disclosure­ of ­information. In other words, the law specifies who has access to what information and for what explicit purpose.
