ACIC Police Check – Easier and Online

Victoria, BC, March 30, 2023 – Today InterCheck-Australia, a wholly owned subsidiary of Certn, announced the launch of self-serve background screening products in the Asia-Pacific region. This launch means that online background checks are more accessible and easier to use for small- and medium-sized businesses that need fast pre-employment screening. 

Background screening plays an important role in ensuring that organizations don’t employ unsuitable candidates.

Types of Background Checks Available in Australia

ACIC Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check (NCCHC)

A Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check (NCCHC), sometimes colloquially referred to as a “police check,” is conducted by Australian businesses to determine a candidate’s suitability for employment or as required by Australian legislation.

Social Media Screening

Once consent is obtained, social media screening uses technology to scan a candidate’s public social media profiles and other online content for potential risks. Social media screening can provide information that a criminal record check or other screening may not show. 

Identity Verification

Instant identity verification establishes the real identity of candidates by verifying over 11,000 types of government-issued identity documents. Our technology uses biometric facial recognition to help you hire more confidently and compliantly.
