Obtaining a police check

AFS licensees have obligations relating to the competence, knowledge and skills of their Responsible Managers (RMs), as well as the officers’ “good fame and character”.

We recommend that licensees ensure their RMs undertake an Australian Federal Police check annually or bi-annually to confirm their good character and to prove to ASIC compliance with the licence conditions and obligations. Please be aware that processing times for national police checks may vary as the AFP is reliant on other police jurisdictions for some information.
