Think this is the best forum to ask this - how can I confirm if my SC is current? I held DV in 2013 but haven’t had a role that’s required that since.
Now a possibility of another job that requires SC has come along but I’m not sure if I still have clearance?

If you are not serving just ask your employer.

Thought it was ten years? Ask PSI / PSAO?

Remember you need to know every country you ever visited, even when you were 5 or 6 .Your mum and dads best friends and their dates of birth, that's their friends as well as you mum and dad. how much cash you have and....


are you gay or have you ever watched porn:rolleyes:


When I had my first , I put down a school friend who only did 3 years in the Army, from 79 till 82 as a ref..

Told me years later when he got the paperwork, drew a huge peace sign on the front with a Fucc the System and sent it back.


Another, after my face to face talk with the " man " who asked me what I would do if I new a soldier who was maybe taking drugs, this was in 92 BTW. I told him what I thought he wanted to hear, so "I would council the soldier, speak to the Doctor etc".

My next ref who was my mate told me after what he had said....

"So what would O_B do if one of his soldiers was taking drugs?"


"Oh take him behind the sheds and batter the Cnut".




Thanks mate.

Don't forget, my understanding is that DC isn't a catch all - it's an SC for each new job / role you go to. So your SC for your last job might not carry in to your new job.

I think!

From the website

Security Check and Counter Terrorist Checks: transfer
a. The SC must not be more than 10 years old for directly employed MOD, HMF or List X contractor’s personnel, or for an employee of a Non List Xcontractor, more than 5 years old (for SC) or 3 years old (for CTC). If a direct employee of MOD, HMF or List X transfers to a Non List X contractor, the security clearance can be issued for the remaining duration of the extant clearance or 5 years (SC) or 3 years (CTC), from the date of the transfer, whichever is the lesser.
Developed Vetting - Transfer
b. The DV clearance must not be more than 7 years old for directly employed MOD or HMF (excluding reservists) personnel or 7 years for List X and 3 years for Non List X contractors’ staff. If a direct employee of MOD or HMF(excluding reservists) transfers to List X, the DV can be issued for 7 years from the original start date. Non List X organisations cannot hold clearances in their own right so the transfer would need to be applied for by the contracting company or IPT.
c. The expiry date of the SC must not have been exceeded. However, if it is established that the vetting subject has remained in continuous employment an extension of up to 6 months may be permitted to allow time for a review to be actioned. In this instance the extended DV clearance may be transferred.
d. You must take up the post for which you were originally DV cleared within 12 months of the clearance being issued and you must not have been out of a post, for which they required DV clearance, for more than 12 months.
Counter Terrorist Check, Security Check and Developed Vetting, common criteria - Transfer
e. No more than 12 months has elapsed since you left the organisation for which the clearance was originally granted or subsequently transferred to and joining the one applying for the latest transfer.
f. No more than 6 months of a 12 month period between leaving one employment and joining another has been spent living overseas.
g. You must not have undergone any of the following changes in your personal circumstances since the application for the security clearance for which a transfer under consideration was made: marrying, remarrying, entering into a civil partnership, setting up a stable unmarried relationship which includes living with someone as a couple.
However, if a change of personal circumstances (CPC) questionnaire has already been completed and has been satisfactorily processed, the transfer should still be able to go ahead. Otherwise, it may be possible for the transfer process to be paused while the vetting subject completes a CPC form.

Expires 12 months after you left the employment where it was last valid.

If the job want you they can sponsor you and you should get it no problems if no issues

Correct. Doesn't matter if you're still in date for SC clearance. You need to start a new one for your new job.

If you're still in, the expiry date of your clearance is listed under 'Competencies' on your JPA profile.
Having just re-upped mine, I don't recall there being anything in the SC process that was job-specific. I also don't recall filling in such a bastard long form either, but there you go.

In the military certain trades/branches have an automatic requirement - for example all Naval Service personnel are SC or higher.

1 year out of role before lapsing, they can't stipulate that you need a current clearance BTW. I got SC'ed a long time ago despite being out of clearance due to applying and saying I'd cruise it.

They needed someone PDQ and it was me - took them a three months, I got it and the contract ended. I walked into another the following Monday.
