SCEC Security Zone Consultants Briefing


**The revised SCEC Security Zone Consultant policy and supporting documentation is now available and is effective from 1 January 2018.**

Consultants that are due for renewal in 2018 will be renewed under the new policy.

The intention of the policy has not changed. SCEC still requires consultants to have qualifications and/or lengthy experience relating to electronic security systems.

While there will be more emphasis given to the amount of work a consultant is conducting (involving Type 1/1A SAS and construction of Security Zones), the main change to the existing policy will be the requirement for SCEC Security Zone Consultants to hold a minimum NV1 clearance.

If a consultant's new/renewal application is accepted, and they do not hold a current clearance, SCEC is now in a position to sponsor consultant clearances through the Australian Government Security Vetting Agency. Consultants will be responsible for the cost of the SCEC-sponsored clearance.

The current SCEC Security Zone Consultant Scheme Policy is now in effect from 1 January 2018.
