Criminal history screening policy

Criminal History Screening Policy

NIISQ Agency recognises that people with a disability can be more vulnerable to abuse, neglect or exploitation than other members of the community. Criminal history screening is one of a range of strategies NIISQ Agency requires service providers to put in place to minimise the risk of harm to people with a disability.

The Criminal History Screening Policy includes information about:
• who is required to undertake a criminal history screening
• disqualifying offences
• frequency of criminal history screening
• record keeping requirements.
