Apply online

Organisations must first be registered for online screening. More information about registering for online screening.  Once your organisation has successfully registered, your nominated officers can commence screening applications online.

Applications are normally commenced by the organisation and completed by the individual applicant.  What if I am a sole trader/self-employed person?
