You may require this certificate as part of the employment or screening process for employers or licensing bodies.
A National Police Certificate (NPC) lists an individual's criminal and traffic court outcomes, and pending charges that can be legally disclosed at the time of application. The certificate is used by many employers and licensing bodies as part of their screening purposes. Certain convictions may not be disclosed on a NPC in accordance with the legislation and policies of various police jurisdictions.
If you are applying for child-related employment, or volunteering you must apply for a Working with Children Check.
You should check with your employer or licensing body to confirm that a National Police Certificate is appropriate to your circumstances, as some employers and licensing bodies use alternative screening processes.
Tasmania Police do not process applications for a National Police Certificate from people residing overseas or interstate. Overseas applicants must apply to the Australian Federal Police.
