The Australian Standard for Employment Screening AS4811 was introduced in 2006 as a guide on how to approach the important area of employment risk and to ensure the integrity, identity and credentials of personnel within an organization.
The key elements of Australian Standards Employment Screening 4811 during its inception were Identity Checks, Address Verification, Employment Verification, Reference Checks, Criminal Checks and Education Checks.
Based on a review of the Standard in March 2022, updates were made to include additional verifications and the introduction of a continuous personnel risk management framework. The framework includes the full life cycle of personnel risk management that the standard refers to as
- initial suitability
- ongoing suitability
- separating personnel (only applies to civilian workforce)
Veremark has developed a comprehensive solution set to assist clients in complying with the minimum requirement for AS4811:2022 that includes:
- Identity (ID) check
- Right to Work verification

- Employment Verification
- Reference Check
- Criminal Check

Additional Optional Checks - based on the nature of the industry, risk associated with the job type and/or the hierarchy of position can be included for an additional cost.
The Veremark platform gives you the flexibility to order a package of checks that meets the AS4811:2022 standard, with an option to include additional checks as required by the role type and the industry. All of this without the need to open an account, pay a joining fee or commit to a lengthy contract.
