APPLICATION FOR NRSO CLEARANCE CERTIFICATES
Please note that the issuing of clearance certificates or verifying individuals for any purpose is not yet operational. The application forms, J738 (Form7), J739 (Form 8) and J 741 (Form 10) should therefore not be submitted to the Registrar’s office, until the process of issuing clearance certificate by the NRSO, have been implemented.

People applying for employment, entity registration or clearance certificates, are advised that, in addition to the acquisition of the SAPS clearance certificate, to also disclose to their employers (on affidavit) that they have never been convicted of a sexual offence against a child or a mentally disabled person. This is provided for in terms of Section 46(1), (2) and (3) of the Criminal Law (Sexual Offences and Related Matters) Amendment Act, 32 of 2007. This affidavit, must be placed in the employee's file to be utilised at a future date once the Register becomes fully operational.
