What is the MoJ process?

NCC NZ will facilitate the following process to obtain a Ministry of Justice NZ police check on behalf of applicants and will liaise with Ministry of Justice where required:

Informed Consent and Identification
The first action is to gain consent from the individual who is being checked for the Ministry of Justice criminal record check.

Check submission and processing
A New Zealand criminal record check request will be submitted to the Ministry of Justice with the provided details. Once this has been submitted, a search is conducted against the Ministry of Justice database for any recorded criminal and traffic convictions and sentencing from court appearances recorded under your details.

All New Zealand criminal record checks are provided in accordance with the Criminal Records (Clean Slate) Act 2004.

The result of an MOJ criminal conviction history check will then be provided to NCC and be made available to you immediately. If an applicant has any questions or concerns regarding the results of their MOJ check, they will need to contact us via phone or email.

We will then liaise with the Ministry of Justice on their behalf.
