Will I receive a clearance letter or card?
A screening clearance letter is posted directly to successful applicants through Australia Post. The employing organisation is advised of the screening outcome by an email from the DCSI Screening Unit.
A card system is not used in South Australia. Clearance letters are printed on security paper embossed with the logo of the South Australian Government.
A clearance letter is not issued for General Employment Probity screening. However, for each of the following types of screening, successful applicants will receive a clearance letter:
- Child-related employment screening
- Aged care sector employment screening
- Disability services sector employment screening
- Vulnerable person-related employment screening
It is recommended clearance letters be kept in a safe place. The Screening Unit does not issue replacements for lost, stolen or misplaced letters.
