  • All guilty findings, behaviour bonds, community-based orders and suspended sentences.

How long is a police check certificate valid?

police checks are requested by a third authority, which makes the validity of police check at the discretion of the requesting authority. A police check is a "point in time check" which means it does not have a set date of expiration. Most companies/organisations inform the individual/staff when to provide updated versions of the police check according to their internal risk mitigation strategy.
