On Thursday 25th April we will be closed. Normal trading hours will resume Friday 26th April. Lest we forget

Due to ACIC compliance updates, the ACIC police partners have advised that since the introduction of the NDIS legislation the Healthcare Vulnerability indicator is no longer required or used by them to determine what information will be released onto a check.

The purpose / proposed place of work and/or issuing authority and state provided on a check, will determine what information can be released by police in accordance with the coinciding state or territory spent conviction legislation and/or information release policies. 

Please ensure you do not use 'generic' terms for the purpose, e.g. 'Contractor'.

Your check may no longer specify healthcare vulnerable on the result, but if your check purpose and industry has a requirement under legislative police release policy they will be vetted in exactly the same way.

We would implore clients to accept certificates regardless of whether the certificate contains "healthcare/vulnerable" in the purpose field.
