The security clearance procedure seeks to prevent activities that endanger national security or significant private economic interests. Supo conducts both personnel and facility security clearances.
Supo may perform personnel security clearance vetting on anyone whose work involves access to premises that are important for security or processing confidential information.
Concise or standard form security clearances should be requested online. Subjects of concise or standard security clearance vetting may complete the application with their own details and consent to the vetting process electronically.
Facility security clearance assesses the reliability of responsible individuals in the enterprise, its level of data security, and its ability to discharge its commitments.
Details of security clearance vetting subjects have been recorded in the security clearance register since 2015. Supo is the controller of the security clearance register.
