Basic Identity Information


Explanation:
From the context, the heading is included in the individual's record of criminal convictions, what needs to be provided are just the basic identity information. If you need find a title for the cover of the record, then you can use "Basic Identity Information for Criminal Check".

If this is a subheading, then "Basic Identity Information" or "Basic Information" is good enough.

criminal record investigation


Explanation:
Since an investigation always includes questions, and you are looking for a heading, "Criminal Record Investigation" or ""Criminal Record Investigation Questions" could be sufficient by itself.

Asker: Thanks a million. I need to emphasize that the criminal record check (investigation) shall be conducted on the identity information below provided by the requester.

Asker: But they're not questions. They are actually identity information of the individual who has requested the criminal record. The Criminal Records Bureau conducts a check / investigation according to that ID info.
