The Security Clearance process can take from between 3 months and 9 months for the clearance to be granted. Below are the various clearances in more detail and what checks will be carried out in order to pass the Security Clearance process.

Developed Vetting (DV)

Developed Vetting (DV) is the highest level of Security Clearance and is required for people with substantial unsupervised access to TOP SECRET assets, or for those working in the Intelligence or Security agencies.

A full DV Security Clearance process comprises the following mandatory vetting stages:

  • A Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS), which is normally undertaken as part of the recruiting process)
  • Departmental / Company Records Check
  • DV Security Questionnaire
  • Criminal Record Check
  • Credit Reference Check and review of personal finances
  • Security Service Check
  • Check of medical and psychological information provided
  • Interview of applicant and further enquiries made, which will include interviews with character referees and current and previous supervisors.

On completion of the vetting process, the information collected is assessed and a decision made to refuse or approve DV Clearance. Once Clearance is granted, it is only valid for a pre-determined period, after which a review must be conducted if the Clearance is still required.

The DV Clearance process can take up to 9 months before full clearance is granted. Gaining DV Clearance will normally require you to have been a resident in the UK for a minimum of 10 years.

Security Check (SC)

A Security Check (SC, or SC Cleared) is required for people who have substantial access to SECRET or occasional controlled access to TOP SECRET assets.

A full Security Check clearance process comprises:

  • A Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS), which is normally undertaken as part of the recruiting process
  • Departmental / Company Records Check
  • Security Questionnaire
  • Criminal Record Check
  • Credit Reference Check
  • Security Service Check

On completion of the process, the information collected is assessed and a decision made to refuse or approve an SC clearance. The clearance process can take between 1-3 months to complete prior to the candidate starting work. Gaining Security Clearance will normally require you to have been a resident in the UK for a minimum of 5 years. 

Counter Terrorist Check (CTC)

A Counter Terrorist Check (CTC, or CTC Cleared) is a Clearance required for people who work in close proximity to public figures, or who have access to material or information that may be vulnerable to terrorist attack, or whose role involves unrestricted access to government or commercial establishments considered to be at risk from terrorist attack.

A CTC Clearance level does not allow access to, or knowledge or custody of, protectively marked assets, but the Baseline Personnel Security Standard allows a degree of access.

The CTC Clearance process involves the following mandatory stages:

  • Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS), which is normally undertaken as part of the recruiting process)
  • Departmental / Company Records Check
  • Security Questionnaire
  • Criminal Record Check
  • Security Service Check

On completion of the vetting process, the information collected is assessed and a decision made to refuse or approve a CTC Clearance. Gaining CTC Clearance will normally require you to have been a resident in the UK for a minimum of 3 years.

NATO / NATO Cleared

NATO has four levels of security classification:

  • NATO Restricted (NR)
  • NATO Confidential (NC)
  • NATO Secret (NS)
  • COSMIC Top Secret (CTS)

NATO's clearance levels function independent of any clearance levels for other nations. However, it is understood that for most NATO nations, granting of a NATO Security Clearance is handled in a similar manner to that of obtaining a national Security Clearance.
