Criminal History Checks
To obtain a copy of your NZ record of criminal convictions please contact the Ministry of Justice www.justice.govt.nz/services/criminal-records . You should allow at least 25 working days for this.
- NZ and Australian graduates registering in the intern pharmacist scope of practice must provide a criminal conviction record.
- If you have resided in another country, prior to initial registration with the Pharmacy Council, you will be required to provide a criminal convictions record from each country you have resided in. There may be exceptions where this has already been checked by Immigration New Zealand.
- Pharmacists or intern pharmacists who are applying for reinstatement to the Register must provide a criminal history check from NZ and any other country they have resided in.
The Criminal Records (Clean Slate) Act 2004 applies.
