An Australian National Police Check is officially called a Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check (NCCHC). It is sometimes also referred to as a NPC or Police Clearance Certificate. A National Police Check is a document that lists disclosable court outcomes and pending charges for an individual. This information is sourced from the databases of all Australian police jurisdictions.

Certain previous convictions, such as spent or juvenile convictions, may not be disclosed on a National Police Check in accordance with the legislation of the various Australian police jurisdictions.

Each National Police Check is a moment-in-time check, which means the information in the check is current as of the date of issue. National Police Checks do not have a formal validity period. In saying that, it is common for many employers and organisations to only accept a police check that has been issued in the past 12 months.

A National Police Check costs $41.50 including GST.

Most National Police Checks are processed, and the results are returned to the applicant, within 1 business day.

Approximately 30% of all police checks ordered within Australia are referred for manual vetting. When this situation occurs, the police check result may take from 1 – 15, and in some instances more, business days to be returned.

Manual vetting of a National Police Check may need to be performed if the applicant shares similar details with other individuals listed in police databases. This can occur if the applicant has a common name. With this in mind, Cited always recommends that you order your National Police Check at least 2 weeks before the result certificate is required.

Turnaround times are based on our experience of the time taken for the majority of these checks to be delivered. However, Cited is reliant on third parties for supply of information, and in some cases those third parties may take longer to supply that information. Accordingly, Cited does not give any time guarantees for any checks or packages. It is Cited’s policy and practice to keep you informed as much as possible if there are any unusual delays.
