A search of the databases of a recognised police service or court to reveals if the applicant has a disclosed criminal history record. Availability and scope varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Where a criminal record cannot be provided, a recorded criminal history can be included.

A PDF report is provided with a full description of any disclosable outcomes. For some countries, a police certificate can also be provided, so if this is a requirement, please include this in your initial request.

Why conduct international police checks?

Many candidates will have lived and worked overseas for a prolonged time and care should be taken as part of a risk-based approach to check a candidate’s criminal history overseas.

Is this a requirement for my organisation?

It is recommended that organisations take a risk-based approach to employment screening and consider international checks where required in line with the Australian Standard AS 4811:2006

How long should I look back?

The recommendation is that all jurisdictions where a candidate has lived overseas for greater than 6 months over the past 10 years are checked.

Is documentary evidence of the result produced?

A PDF report disclosing any outcomes or stating no outcomes have been found. If requested and where available, an original police certificate can be provided also.

What are the requirements to conduct this search?

  • Full Name (including prior names)
  • Date of Birth
  • Address (some countries require evidence of address)
  • ID or Passport Number
  • Photo Identification
  • Signed letter of consent (some countries require an additional consent form)
