Also known as an International Criminal History Check (ICHC), a fit2work international police check details recorded criminal history in over 200 countries. This includes identifying felony and/or misdemeanour level conviction records and arrests pending adjudication.

Checks are usually ready within 5 to 15 working days. In some cases, it will take longer, depending on the processing times of government agencies coordinating checks in each country.

Once the checks are underway, track their status from start to finish through a single click in the online fit2work platform.

There are no rules or regulations about how often an international police check should be conducted. It’s useful to keep in mind that it’s a ‘point in time’ check only, so records are checked up until the date of issue, not after. If infringements occur later, you won’t know about them, which is why regular police checks will help mitigate risk to your business. 

The fit2work online portal allows you to track and manage the status of all your police checks. You can search and auto-schedule future refresher checks.

There is far more value in conducting police background checks if you have a plan for what you’re going to do with the results. Preparation and strategy is a crucial part of using background checks to benefit your business. Check out this sample process flow in our Police Check eBook showing the relationship between police checks and organisational policies and procedures. 

When an international check has been 'referred for manual processing', it means that our international providers are administering the check. As these records are managed by the government or police of these overseas countries, fit2work cannot expedite these checks.
