What is checked in a police check?

A police check examines an individual’s criminal history and, in some states, traffic offences. All court outcomes and pending charges are disclosed in a police check. At Worker Checks, we understand that this information can be sensitive, and that’s why we’ve implemented cutting-edge blockchain technology to safeguard our users’ data.

In addition to a criminal history check, employers may request a proof of identity checkright to work check, or working with children check. Each of these assesses different criteria.

How long are police checks valid for?

National police checks in Australia do not have a specific validity window. Instead, they are only 100 per cent correct and up-to-date on the day of issuing. That being said, some organisations set their own requirements – for example, an employer may request a police check issued in the last 14 days.

It is the responsibility of employers and organisations to keep on top of their employees’ suitability at their own discretion.

Is a national crime check the same as a police check?

In most cases, a national crime check and police check are the same thing. However, there are exceptions.

A police check can refer to a criminal history check here in Australia or anywhere around the world. Some employers request international police checks to determine the suitability of prospective employees.

A national crime check, in contrast, typically refers to an Australian police check.

Wrapping your head around the terminology related to police record checks can be a challenge. For answers to some of the most commonly asked question we get from our customers, check out our FAQs page.

What is an International Police Check?

Also known as an International Criminal History Check (ICHC), it details recorded criminal history in over 200 countries and overseas territories. This includes identifying felony and/or misdemeanour level conviction records and arrests pending adjudication.

How long does an International Police Check take?

Your check is usually ready within 5 to 15 working days. In some cases, it will take longer, depending on the processing times of government agencies coordinating checks in each country.

Why do I need an International Police check?

You may be new to Australia and want to verify your background to include in your CV or job application. Many businesses include an international police check as part of their pre-screening process if candidates have spent more than six months overseas. ICHC checks are usually required for international students, teachers and health practitioners, including:

  • AHPRA registration
  • Nursing Council of NZ registration
  • Monash University International
  • Teacher Registration Board of Western Australia.
Where do I get an International Police Check for AHPRA?

Workerchecks is a leading provider of international criminal history checks (ICHC). It is mandatory for health practitioners in Australia to apply for an international police check if they fall under specific categories. These include declaring a criminal history outside Australia and/or have lived in one or more countries other than Australia for six consecutive months or longer when aged 18 years or more.

When you submit your international police application with Workerchecks, our support team will review it to ensure all the required information and supporting documents are correct. You will receive a confirmation email with a reference page and reference number. You must provide these details with your Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) registration application.
