To facilitate the employment needs of the applicants, with effect from 2 May 2014, the validity period of SCRC new applications made on or after that date will be extended from 12 to 18 months whereas that of renewal applications will remain as 12 months.
The validity period of all applications made prior to that date will remain as 12 months and the expiry date of existing accounts will remain unchanged.
If applicants would like to renew the validity period of the checking code, please make an advance booking through Auto-Telephone Answering System (ATAS) (Tel.: 3660 7499) within the last two months of the validity period. When applicants book for an appointment, please use the first eight digits of the checking code as the identification code for booking. The available appointment date is any working day within the last month of the validity period. Applicants should then bring along with them Hong Kong Identity Card to attend the Sexual Conviction Record Check Office in person on the day of appointment to submit a request for renewal and pay the prescribed renewal fee.
After renewal, the validity period will be extended for another 12 months counting from the original expiry date. Applicants or the persons authorised by the applicants will be able to access the check result using the original checking code during the renewal period. Please note that if the checking code has expired, we could not process the request for renewal and applicants have to submit a fresh application for the checking.
