What checks do I need for an Airside ID Card

To work in a restricted area of an airport unescorted, you will need to obtain the following checks/ documents from your applicants: 

  • 5 year employment history, including any gaps over 28 days 

  • Basic Criminal Record (DBS, Disclosure Scotland, Access NI)

  • Verify their identity  

  • An overseas criminal record check, if they have spent a continuous 6 months or more in any one country 

  • A General Security Awareness Test (GSAT) if they haven’t already done an equivalent certificate as part of their security training
