Information on the spent convictions scheme can be found here.

The official certificate is sent directly to the email address that was provided in the police check application form. However, if there is a need for ‘manual review’ by Australian police agencies, the date of issuance may be extended. Manual reviews are referred automatically and may occur when there is a semblance between an applicant’s information on the police criminal history database, for example if there is a person in the country with the same name or similar name to the applicant and is of interest to Australian police agencies. This process may push back the application for a period of around 1 to 15+ business days. It should be noted that official agencies like Australian National Character Check have no control over applications that are referred for manual processing. Results are dispatched on the same day they are received.
