Frequently Asked Questions

Formally known as a Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check, a police check can be ordered through bodies accredited by the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC). CVCheck is accredited by ACIC to perform police checks in Australia.

Formally known as a Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check, a police check is a ‘point-in-time’ check and is current as of the date of issue. A police check has no formal period of validity. However, many employers and organisations only accept a police check that has been issued in the past 12 months.

Formally known as a Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check, a police check costs $49.90 including GST.

The majority of police checks are processed and the results returned within 1 business day.

However, approximately 30% of all these checks ordered within Australia are referred for manual processing. If this occurs, the result may take from 1 – 15 business days to be returned.

Processing of police checks can take longer if the applicant shares similar details with other individuals recorded in police databases, particularly if they have a common name. It is therefore always recommended that applicants order their police check at least 2 weeks before the certificate is required.

There is no difference between a police check and a criminal history check in Australia. Since July 2018, the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC), the government body that regulates police checks, formally applied the title of Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check (NCCHC) to all police checks in Australia.

A police check in Australia may sometimes be referred to as a:

  • National Police Check (NPC)
  • National Police History Check (NPHC)
  • National Criminal History Check (NCHC)
  • National Criminal Record Check (NCRC)
  • State Police Check (no longer available)

About CVCheck

This is the part where we are supposed to talk to you about how long we’ve been in business and how our online platform makes it easy to order and share your police check, or other employment information. But, let’s face it. You’re busy, and you don’t care about the 800,000 people we’ve helped before you.

You’re wondering why you should use CVCheck instead of some other provider. We get it … sometimes it’s hard to tell them apart.

So, let’s do something a little different. Let’s go back to the beginning of CVCheck to see why you’re important to us and how you can know that we actually care. That we understand how important your check results are for starting a job, getting licensed, or getting on with life somehow. 

You see, right from the beginning (in 2006) we designed our entire platform around you, as an individual. By that I mean, we ensured none of our checks can be done without your consent. We set everything up so you have access to your check results whether they were ordered by you or by an employer.

So, while we work with thousands of employers and some of Australia’s biggest names, we’ve always understood that employment happens one person at a time.

Lastly, the employers you’ll be working with know and trust CVCheck. That’s important because your check is no good to you if your result is not accepted. If you order through us, you can have 100% confidence that your next employer will trust and accept the results you hold with us. In fact, we guarantee it. 

At the end of the day, we’ve helped thousands of people from hundreds of professions including job seekers, students, health workers, tradesmen, professionals, volunteers … and many more. 

And we can help you too.
