|Spanish term or phrase: dirección del archivo nacional de sentenciados|
|Se trata del mismo certificado de buena conducta, de México. Tienen un equivalente en inglés de Australia? Gracias!|
|directorate of the national archives of convicted offenders|
A few points of fine-tuning:
1. "Dirección" can mean management or management organ. The UK equivalent for the EU is "directorate".
2. "Sentenciados" may not necessarily mean prison inmates (a lot of "guante blanco" offenders out there on million-dollar bails). The equivalent used for translation in this case was "antecedentes penales" in Alcaraz, which is the paper equivalent of justice/police clearance.

Director of Prison Inmate Records
Though I couldn't find the exact equivalent, I think this should fit the bill.

I guess it would be \"Office of\"

Administrative Offices of the National Records (Files, Archives) of Convicts
Tom West - Spanish-English Dictionary of Law and Business (1999)
"sentenciado en libertad (Mex)convicto on parole"
Obviously in your example, there is no "en libertad" (on parole)
So, "sentenciado" would be "convict", and this is specified for Mexico
Also in Tom West's legal dictionary, the translation of "Dirección" is "administrative offices, headquarters, head office"
Finally, "archivo" in the Oxford Spanish-English Dictionary is the following:
archivo m 1 a (local) archive b conjunto de documentos) tb archivos archives (pl), archive; los archivos de la policía the police files o records 2(Inf) file
In some ways, it would seem more important to üse "records" here given the subject matter.
