Security Vetting

BPSS – Baseline Personnel Security Screening

BPSS underpins the checks that Cataphract spend 90% of our vetting time delivering. It builds the foundation of the CTC, SC and DV security clearance and consists of the following.

The HMG Baseline Personnel Security Standard (or ‘BPSS’) describes the pre employment controls for all civil servants, members of the Armed Forces, temporary staff and government contractors generally. Its rigorous and consistent application also underpins national security vetting.

Our dedicated team of ex-police officers attend the interview days with our clients to understand if the applicant should pass vetting up to SC level, discussing their immigration story (if held), criminal record and financial stability. Please note this is only an opinion and the employer is empowered with the final decision.

Our dedicated Security Vetting software is integrated with Hellosign, online applicant data capture, customisable auto emails, and downloadable forms to create a smooth vetting progress.
