Not only organisations but some government institutions need more background information about an individual to safeguard the life/properties of people under their care. A Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check (NCCHC) contains all Disclosable Court Outcomes (DCOs) of an individual. The Check results show all convictions, including traffic charges that lead to convictions and all pending charges.
The NCCHC certificate is issued by the Australian Police authorities and federal government accredited agencies like Australian National Character Check.
There are two ways which you can apply for a criminal background check.

When the Search Algorithm generates a potential match, it is referred to the relevant police agencies for further review. The review is then done manually and seeks to confirm if the "match" was circumstantial (due to similarities or errors in details) or correct. If the "Match" happens to be authentic, the officials proceed to vet the check manually.
Manual processing involves checking whether or not the convictions belong to the individual and then comparing the convictions against the applicants to the spent conviction legislation and information release policy. Here the police agencies decide what information can be released (DCO) following the purpose of the check and state's legislation.
Australian National Character Check returns the results for every national police clearance application on the same day they are received. However, if a check is flagged for “further review", it could delay the result by 2 to 15 working days. When this happens, Australian National Character Check cannot influence the process, nor do we know beforehand which application will be "flagged"
