Criminal record

An overview of criminal sentences handed down against a physical person or legal entity, additionally including commercial, civil and administrative decisions which deprive physical people from exercising certain rights. This information is included within the National Criminal Record Bureau, which is a department within the Ministry for Justice in Nantes and which issues records referred to as "bulletins". At the time of entry onto the Trade and Companies Register, the Presiding Judge at the court tasks the Clerk to request a criminal record bulletin no. 2 from the party concerned, so as to verify the lack of any sentence prohibiting the latter from undertaking commercial or civil activities. It should be noted that incorporation of commercial agents cannot be undertaken prior to issue of this document.
