When you apply for a WWC Check you give ongoing consent to the collection, use and disclosure of information about you (including criminal records) that is relevant to whether you should be issued with a WWC Card. This is for the initial checking based on your application and, if issued with a WWC Card, checking on an ongoing basis until it expires.
If the WWC Screening Unit receives new information about you during that time your eligibility to hold a WWC Card may be re-assessed. Once a re-assessment is triggered, the WWC Screening Unit can then request and consider any information that is relevant to the issue of whether a child may be exposed to a risk of harm should you continue to engage in child-related work. This may include requesting and considering information from sources such as other government departments or professional organisations and is not limited to your criminal record.
