What is a National Police Certificate?
A National Police Certificate (NPC) is a document that lists an individual's disclosable court outcomes and pending charges sourced from the databases of all Australian police jurisdictions.
Certain convictions, such as spent or juvenile convictions, may not be disclosed on a NPC in accordance with the legislation and policies of the various police jurisdictions.
National Police Certificates are commonly used for employment or licensing purposes. You should check with your employer or licensing body to confirm that a National Police Certificate is appropriate as some employers and licensing bodies use alternative screening processes.
