Security Construction and Equipment Committee

The Security Construction and Equipment Committee (SCEC) is a standing inter-departmental committee responsible for the evaluation of security equipment for use by Australian Government departments and agencies. SCEC is also responsible for the SCEC Security Zone Consultant scheme, SCEC Approved Locksmith scheme, and SCEC endorsed Courier scheme.

The equipment evaluation program and consultant, locksmith and courier schemes are managed by ASIO's T4 Protective Security directorate.

SCEC reports to the Attorney-General's Protective Security Policy Committee which was established by the Australian Government to develop and establish guidelines for the protection of Australian Government resources.
