ACRO police certificate for London medical (merged)

Kinda confused about something and wondered if anyone can help me out? My finace is going to get his ACRO police certificate and it is saying someone has to endorse it. You have to know the person for 2 years and can not be a family member.

 

My question is, What are they endorsing? Are you supposed to bring something with you to the police station or is this something they endorse after you get it. We are very confused here. The ACRO website doesn't explain things very well.

 

Thanks for all your help!

7. Endorser details - Your application must be endorsed by a suitable individual. We require your endorser’s full name, occupation, relationship to you (e.g. friend, employer etc. but NOT family), a telephone number, and their email address as we may send your passport photograph to them as part of our check. Click here for a list of possible endorsers.

 

 

What exactly does this mean? Does one of the possible endorsers need to just sign the application? We are a little confused about this and any help would be great! Thank you!

When you apply it asks for contact information of an individual to endorse you.

 

I've applied for two police certs now and given the names, professions and email/telephone numbers of two friends. As their blurb states, they may contact the individual if they need/want to verify your identity. In both cases for me, they didn't.

 

They don't need to sign anything. Just input their information in the relevant fields when you are making your police cert application.

Thank you! We were afraid with the word endorse on there that it was more and something will get screwed up. The process can make you slightly crazy. LOL Thanks again!

The language is likely left over from the old days before things got automated. A person actually signed the back of your photo which got mailed with the paper application. I got my GP to do it when I went in for shots because doctor was on their list.

Hey! I done my ACRO in July. So with endorsements, ACRO does require it to be endorsed/verified if required. There is a list of professions that the person must be a part of. Obviously they must have known you for 2 years as you know. So the person you name on your form can be a GP, Manager, optician, old teacher who taught you. The endless list of options is on the app from memory.

 

Always be sure to ask permission if your putting their contact details down (that kinda goes without saying). It’s just a formality for ACRO if they need anything verified, like your identity for example. Important not to overthink it! 

 

Good luck.

 

London’s an amazing Embassy!

Yes, a lot of out dated information put there. I was seriously considering doing some updated, quality you tube videos on this. Lol

Of course endorse can also mean that the person can sanction or verifiy your identity. It doesn't have to mean a literal signing of something.
