Criminal History checks are one of the most common checks conducted in Australia
Police Check and Identity Verification

Identity Verification (Australia)

Recruit with confidence and confirm the candidate is who they say they are. As part of the criminal history check process, we are required to ensure applicants match who they claim to be. The Identity Matching Services provide a secure, fast and private way for identity documents to be verified. VerifyNow utilises a gateway service provider to complete DVS checks.

Identity verification is processed through a gateway service partner using the Australian Federal Government’s Document Verification Service (DVS), an online system for comparing identifying information with a government-issued record. The DVS checks whether the personal information on an identity document matches the original record. The DVS makes it harder for people to use fake identity documents.
