We also offer Enhanced Developed Vetting, adding an additional level of interviews to the Developed Vetting process where customers require a more in-depth check of their potential or current employees.

Security Check (SC)

This check is for personnel who require substantial access to Secret assets or occasional controlled access to Top Secret assets. This process involves security checks and credit referencing.

We also offer an Enhanced Security Check adding an additional level of investigation to the Security Check process where customers require more in-depth information on potential or current employees.

Counter - Terrorist Check (CTC)

This check is for personnel employed in posts with proximity to public figures, access to information or material assessed to be of value to terrorists.  Checks are made on criminal records and other security information.


Reviews are carried out on personnel who have been vetted previously. The process offers the opportunity to recheck personnel or to reconfirm the suitability of an individual who has previously held a security cleared role.
