Security clearance pack


As a guide, information to be provided during the CMTEDD security clearance vetting process includes:

The information provided by an individual and their referees will only be used by authorised personnel. The most important factors in the security clearance process are honesty, openness, and thoroughness in completing the responses. Answering ‘yes’ to any of the questions does not automatically preclude an individual from obtaining a security clearance.

The personnel vetting process can be complex. The time it takes to assess each case will vary depending on individual circumstances. Once all required documentation is provided, the benchmark timeframe for provision of a CMTEDD Security Clearance is within 10 working days. It will take longer to process AGSVA issued security clearances.
