A Police Check Certificate lists your Police Check findings (subject to relevant spent convictions/non-disclosure legislation and/or information release policies).
Disclosable Court Outcomes means the record of court convictions and findings of guilt, to which provisions of relevant spent convictions/non-disclosure legislation and/or information release policies have been applied.
The type and amount of information that is released will depend upon the category and purpose of the check, as well as the jurisdiction where convictions are recorded (and vetted). Spent convictions legislation or information release policies will be applied to this process by vetting police agencies.
The result of your check will either be:
- No Disclosable Court Outcomes (NDCO) – means that there is no police history information that is held or that can be released
Disclosable Court Outcomes (DCO) – Police History Information exists that can be released to the submitting organisation. This may include
- court convictions, including any penalty or sentence
- findings of guilt with no conviction
- court appearances
- good behaviour bonds or other court orders
- pending matters awaiting court hearing
- traffic history
