Who can Apply?

In Western Australia, historical certificates are available to:

In recognition of the fact that the fraudulent use of certificates reduces with the age of the record, the evidence-of-identity requirements are not required for the historical certificates stated above.

More recent certificates held by the Registry contain sensitive and personal information and are restricted to eligible people only.  

A person must be at least 16 years of age to apply for a certificate and must provide their evidence-of-identity.

If you are not an eligible applicant you must provide the written consent or authority from an eligible person and you must also provide evidence-of-identity for yourself and that person (see Letter of Authority download below).

Please refer to the Registry's Certificate Access Policies for a full list of eligible applicants.
