The NZSIS will advise your CSO when the security vetting is complete. Based on the NZSIS recommendation, your agency head will decide whether to grant the clearance. When a clearance is granted, your agency will notify NZSIS and provide you with:

  • a briefing on your responsibilities in relation to information handling
  • details of action in case of a change in circumstance
  • details of the agency’s security awareness training programme.

Your agency must also implement a personal security clearance management plan.
