When is screening required?

Screening by the DCSI Screening Unit may be required by an organisation when recruiting or engaging people for a work or volunteer role, or where rescreening of current employees or volunteers is required.

Where not mandated by law, the decision as to what type of screening is required is made by the employing organisation, based the inherent duties of the role.  Organisations may develop their own policies that require employees and volunteers to undergo criminal record checks or contracts with third parties may require personnel to be screened.
