How can I find out if my clearance is current?

To find out if your clearance is current, you can ask your employer (or the organisation that requested your screening clearance) to check for you.

Any organisation registered with the DCSI Screening Unit can go online and check the validity of a DCSI Screening Unit clearance letter (except General Employment Probity clearances) presented to them by an employee, potential employee, volunteer or student.

To check the clearance status, the employer logs into the DCSI screening online portal and conducts a search, by entering your name, date of birth, screening type, reference number and/or date the clearance was provided.
