Check validity

Most checks are valid for three years. A working with children check is valid for five years. Child-related, disability services, aged care sector and vulnerable-person related checks are continuously monitored and will be revoked if necessary.

Check renewals can be submitted up to six months before a current check expires.

Only organisations can see if a check is still valid:

  • login to the online organisation portal
  • go to ‘person search’
  • enter
    • name
    • date of birth
    • check type (note you cannot check validity of general employment probity clearances)
    • reference number
    • date clearance was provided
    • length of time the clearance is valid.
