South African Police Clearance Certificates (PCC) are point-in-time checks and are valid as of the date of issue. While a PCC has no formal period of validity, many employers and organisations will only accept a certificate that has been issued in the past 6 months.
* All turnaround times are estimated working times for our checks 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 packages. It is CVCheck’s policy and practice to keep you informed as much as possible if there are any unusual delays.
