A security pass is required by everyone working on the parliamentary estate, requiring access to the parliamentary network or being given access to sensitive parliamentary information.
Upon appointment to a Member’s office, a new member of staff will be required to comply with the Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS) and undergo a Counter Terrorist Check (CTC).
You can find full information about security vetting and the Members’ Staff Security Clearance and Pre-Employment Check Questionnaire here: https://intranet.parliament.uk/security/personal-security-vetting-and-passes/security-forms/
Once completed, the form should be forwarded, together with all the required original documentation, to the Security Vetting Team. Please do not forget that the Member must sign the back of the form before it is submitted to the team, together with the required original identification documents.
From 28 February 2022, the process by which Members apply for clearance for their staff is being changed to provide a simpler, more user-friendly online system.
