hi,
I'm almost 100% positive that they are valid for 1 year.

I guess it depends on the context. They have no lifespan
as such, since they are out of date before they arrive
by post on your doormat.

For Oz immigration purposes they are good for 12 months.

For Australia, it's valid for 12 months from date of issue.

For NZ, it has to be less than 6 months old at the time you lodge your application for residence. NZIS may request for a fresh police cert if the cert is more than 12 months old (from date of issue) when the decision is about to be made regarding the residence application.

I, too, recall reading the particular post that you're pointing out - about that someone saying that he/she is sure that it's valid only for 6 months. Must have mixed it up with NZ requirements.

For Australia it's 12 months as we were granted visas in September
2002 & our Police certs which we included with our original
application expired on the 10th September & around the 2nd September
after sending in our medicals AH asked us to redo our Police checks,
but as they had promised us an extension of 3 months when I had
previously told them about my wife being pregnant we avoided redoing
them by agreeing to make our initial entry before 10th December 2002.
