About the Criminal Records (Clean Slate) Act 2004

This legislation is designed to allow individuals with less serious convictions who have been conviction free for at least seven years and who meet all other relevant criteria to put their past behind them. It will enable eligible individuals to conceal convictions in most circumstances.There are some exceptions when individuals' convictions will continue to be disclosed. The Criminal Records (Clean Slate) Act 2004 is an automatic scheme - therefore, it is not necessary to apply for a 'clean slate'. If you meet all the criteria for concealing previous convictions, you are eligible to have your convictions concealed by the Ministry. Your convictions will be entitled to be concealed as long as you continue to meet all the criteria. Those who do not meet all criteria will be ineligible for 'clean slate' purposes and will receive a criminal convictions report.
