Why register for online screening?
Your organisation must register with the DCSI Screening Unit in order to be able to apply online for screening. All screening applications must be submitted online, except where it can be demonstrated that the applicant is unable to do so because of exceptional circumstances.
Since it was introduced in July 2015, the online process of applying for screening has resulted in significant improvements in customer satisfaction, reduced screening timelines, and minimised data entry errors related to the processing of screening assessments.
Once registered for online screening your organisation's nominated officers will be able to access an online portal and see the progress of each application commenced by your organisation. The applicant will be notified once you have initiated their application, and will then be able to log in and, in most cases, fully complete their application online. Your organisation will also receive emails from the Screening Unit regarding the progress of each application.
