National Police Clearances

What is a National Police Clearance (NPC)?
A NPC is a list of an individual’s previous criminal outcomes and pending charges that are deemed as disclosable at the time of applying for a NPC.

Why do I need one?
Many of the sites throughout the Mining & Resources industry require their staff, both contractors and permanent employees, to obtain a NPC to be able to proceed to site. If you are going to work at one of these sites, you will be required to present a NPC in order to be cleared to go to site.

Rest assured that your personal information will be handled sensitively and appropriately as MPi acts in line with the Privacy Act 1988. You can see MPi's privacy policy here.
