Electronic Criminal Clearance

The electronic criminal clearance is an alternative to the standard police clearance certificate (PCC). The information contained in the electronic criminal clearance is extracted from the same SAPS database but is not an official police clearance certificate which is needed for certain applications. Our clients will need to enquire if this option will suffice for their needs.

The benefits of this clearance is the speed at which it can be issued and allows our clients results to become available within 24-48 hours. Certain institutions also accept this clearance which brings down the cost of a normal SAPS police clearance.


Why Should You Get an Electronic Criminal Clearance?

Due to time constraints it is not always in your interests to get a SAPS police clearance certificate. Also sometimes the requirements are less strict and an electronic criminal clearance is all you need to fulfill your needs. The following scenarios will require you to get an electronic criminal clearance. 

  • some companies will require a pre-employment enquiry on your criminal status.
  • corporate enquiry when working with new suppliers.
  • statutory requirement.
  • application for a Professional Driving Permit (PrDP)
  • registration with the Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority (PSIRA).
  • SACE and many more.
