Screening checks are now monitored

The Screening Unit now monitors new information that may change the clearance status of individuals.

The new screening system, which was introduced from 1 July 2017, will help to reduce the risk of harm to children and vulnerable people.

Why the change?  

Previously, screening reviewed and assessed an individual’s relevant history only once every three years. The new system will monitor relevant information from a variety of sources to help better protect children and vulnerable people.

This new information will be used by the DHS Screening Unit to reassess screening clearances and ensure they are current.
