National Police Certificate - Tasmania


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.

You should confirm with your employer or licensing body that a National Police Certificate is appropriate to your circumstances, as some employers and licensing bodies use alternative screening processes.
