The ten quid one should be perfectly acceptable as far as I know. That is what we used. The £35 quid jobby used to be for fast tracking I thought.
I quite see what you mean though Stoof. The NZIS website leads you to the pilot scheme put in place by the UK Constabulary.

As far as I can see the ten quid jobs from your local police station shuld do the job.

for instance here is the form from the Dorset Police. It seems to still be ten quid.

Go along to your local main police station and ask them for the police clearance forms or look up your county headquarters and hopefully download from there. Always good to save £50 quid where you can .

No Stoof. Get the normal police check . NZIS like their paperwork to be reasonable uniform

sundry note for those looking in :-

A police check
must be no more than six months old to be acceptable.

My ITA has just been received at NZ House ad I have just spoken to my case officer.

The £10 one is fine so no need to worry!

Default Re: police cert £35??? thought it was a tenner?!

just had a very frustrating conversation with the local police HQ....

me 'i can't find the form on your website that i need to download'
them 'do this this and this - there it is'
me 'yep, that's what i've done, but it's not there'
them 'do this this and this - there it is'
me 'yeah, STILL not there'
them 'erm'
me - blinding flash of 'oh i bet your website only likes internet explorer and not safari'..
them 'erm'
me 'can you email one to me?'
them 'erm'
me 'please? or send it in the post'
them 'hang on, i'll check'
them 'you should be able to get it off the website'
me.......

etc etc etc

ho hum

I rang the ACPO number today and this is what they told me.
quote 'The ACPO address for applying for certificates was being run on a pilot scheme with certain Police forces. It was deemed a success and is now being rolled out across the country. It will be in force nationwide within the next few weeks. The price will be increased from the normal £10 to £35. Local Police forces will cease to supply customers with application forms.' unquote.

If you have recently applied and only paid a tenner then you were lucky and got in before your force ceased trading.

Dont forget that Scottish law is different from the rest of the UK, so you may be able to keep getting them done locally.
I have just had to apply for Criminal Records checks for my job in the UK but cant get them done as a sole trader so have to get a registered company to obtain them for me in England.
I contacted the Scotland records office and they are processing them for £20 no questions asked.
All move to Scotland prior to applying for NZ!!!!!
