CVCheck’s Australian National Police Check, formally known as a Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check, is ACIC accredited and will detail all disclosable criminal history entries that are recorded for an individual in any Australian police agency.
All Australian National Police Checks are:
• Recorded in compliance with spent conviction legislation (click here to find out more)
• Include any current pending charges that have been initiated by the police
• May include traffic convictions.
CVCheck, police agencies and the ACIC work together to deliver the Service, aiming to process 95% of police checks within 10 business days, noting that:
- 70% of all checks are completed within 1 business day
- 25% are completed within 10 business days as they’ve been referred to one or more police agencies because an individual’s name is similar to a person of interest.
- 5% may take 15 business days or more (depending on the complexity of the check). For further information on ACIC delivery times click here.
Please note: National Police Checks are used for employment purposes or appointing individuals to positions of trust and cannot be used for Immigration, Visa or IVF applications. For more info, feel free to view our FAQ’s here.
* All turnaround times are estimated working days and are provided as a guide only. Turnaround times are based on our experience of the time taken for the majority of these checks to be delivered. However, CVCheck is reliant on third parties for supply of information, and in some cases those third parties may take longer to supply that information. Accordingly, CVCheck does not give any time guarantees for any checks or bundle packages. It is CVCheck’s policy and practice to keep you informed as much as possible if there are any unusual delays. Should an Australian National Police Check be referred for further enquiries it may take several days to receive the result, and occasionally much longer. Read more about our delivery times here.
