Clearances

Clergy and lay people who hold certain roles, offices or positions are required to hold a clearance as prescribed by the Professional Standards Uniform Act and the Professional Standards Uniform Amended Regulations. These clearances are known as either a Clearance for Ministry or a Clearance for Service.

The Anglican Diocese of Melbourne has engaged the services of Kooyoora (an independent, not for profit organisation) to process clearance applications and to issue clearance certificates on its behalf.  Kooyoora follows the professional standards legislation and regulation prescribed by the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne to process the applications.
