Question: Why do DHS Screening volunteers have to return the authorised application form to the organisation for endorsement?
Answer: The DHS Screening Check authorisation should remain secure within an organisation to prevent illegitimate usage. The DHS Screening must be endorsed after the applicant has had their application and identification authorised..
Endorsement of the application form provides a declaration that the applicant named
