General Information for an Australian National Police History Check
General Information
Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) is collecting your personal information in this form in order to conduct a
National Police History Check (NPHC) on you. Approved Agencies in New Zealand, named in section one, use the personal
information collected on this form and the resulting NPHC as part of the assessment process to determine suitability for the
position/entitlement/benefit which you are applying for.
Unless statutory obligations require otherwise, the information provided on this form will not be used without your prior
consent for any purpose other than in relation to the assessment of your suitability or to maintain the records of ACIC,
Australian Police Agencies
, or NZ Police.
You will be required to complete another consent form for any future NPHC checks.
National Police History Check (NPHC)
A NPHC is an integral part of the assessment of your suitability. Information on this form will be used by ACIC, and Australian
Police Agencies for checking action; it will also be used to update records held about you by ACIC, Australian Police Agencies
and NZ Police.
Information released may include outstanding charges, warrant information and criminal convictions/findings/pleas of guilt
recorded against you that may be disclosed according to the laws of the relevant jurisdiction and, in the absence of any
laws governing the release of that information, according to the relevant jurisdiction information release policy.
Limitations on accuracy and use of Police History Information
While every care has been taken by ACIC to conduct a search of information held by Australian Police Agencies that relate
to the applicant, the accuracy and quality of this NPHC depends on accurate identification of the Applicant (including
aliases) according to the information provided in the Request and Consent Form and the comprehensiveness of police
records. If the applicant does not complete the information requirements in this form the success and validity of the NPHC
will be compromised.
If for any reason you do not agree with the results of your NPHC, please notify the Approved Agency that you submitted the
check through in the first instance, so that the NPHC dispute process can be initiated.
The release of information by Australian Police Agencies is subject to relevant Spent Convictions, non-disclosure legislation
or information release policies.
Spent Conviction Schemes
The aim of Spent Convictions legislation2 is to prevent discrimination on the basis of certain previous convictions. Spent
Convictions legislation limits the use and disclosure of older, less serious convictions and findings of guilt. Each Australian
Police Agency will apply the relevant Spent Convictions legislation/information release policy prior to disclosure.
Australian Federal Police, ACT Policing, The New South Wales Police Force, Queensland Police Service, South Australia Police, Victoria Police, Western
Australia Police, Northern Territory Police Force, Tasmania Police Service
