Screening Unit

The DHS Screening Unit continues to operate during the COVID-19 response.

Screening Unit

Continuous monitoring

All child-related, disability services, aged care sector and vulnerable person-related checks done by the Screening Unit are continuously monitored.

The system helps reduce the risk of harm to children and vulnerable people by monitoring information that may affect an individual’s check status.

The Screening Unit receives information from a range of databases, such as SA Police and Department for Child Protection, which is automatically searched for any new information relevant to an individual’s check status.

If the new information means an individual's clearance status is changed or revoked, the individual and the organisation that originally requested the check will be notified in writing.
