GCC or a Police Clearance Certificate is an official document which is issued as a result of a background check by the police or government agency of a country to enumerate any criminal records that the applicant may have. Arrest, conviction, and possibly criminal proceedings are all included in criminal records. PCC is also known with other names as Good Citizen Certificate, Good Conduct Certificate, Police Certificate, National Police History Check or Judicial Record Extracts.
GCC is required if the applicant is:
