How to use the reference checking directory
Our reference checking directory can provide assistance to financial services organisations conducting reference checks.
In the directory there are links to ASIC registers, to other ASIC resources and to service providers holding information which may be appropriate for reference checks.
Before carrying out reference checks, the following may assist:
- Standards Australia's handbook, Reference Checking in the Financial Services Industry (HB 322-2007) (free to download)
- Australian Standard on Employment Screening (AS 4811-2006) and Employment Screening Handbook (HB 323-2007) (both accessed through the SAI Global site)
- Office of the Privacy Commissioner.
Some service providers may charge for their information.
