It is concerned with the collection, use and disclosure of old conviction information. The Scheme prevents discrimination against certain convictions, once 10 years has elapsed, the individual has shown that they have not re-offended and have met the other required criteria. The Spent Convictions Scheme also prevents discrimination against convictions that have been quashed or pardoned.

A crime is considered a spent conviction when ALL the following criteria are satisfied for a Commonwealth, Territory, State or foreign offence.

  • 10 years has passed since the conviction date. (5 years have passed since the date of a juvenile conviction)
  • The conviction did not include sentencing for imprisonment or if sentenced for imprisonment it was not over 30 months.
  • Individual did not re-offend during the 10 year ( or 5 year for juvenile offenses) waiting period
