What checks do I need in Aviation? 

To work in the Critical Part (the area of the airport found once you pass security) or the Non-Critical Part of an airport, your applicants will need to undergo a series of background checks.

For Airside ID Pass clearance, there are specific checks that your applicants must complete ahead of being issued with their pass. All of these checks can be managed with our Airside ID Pass bundle, enabling the process to be completed quickly and easily. These include:

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

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

  • Identity Check

  • 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

Do I have to use your integration for a DBS/GSAT or can I obtain my own?

No you don’t have to use our integrations, but you can certainly manage the process within VettingGateway. You can log when the application was requested and upload the certificate so that all documents are kept together for your airside pass application and you can also monitor validities, so documents don’t expire


Do you integrate with AirportGateway?

Yes we do, once your applicants referencing is complete we have a seamless integration with AirportGateway to transfer your applicants referencing details and their documents. Saving you a lot of administration time in entering this information 


How will I know if I need an overseas criminal record check for my applicant?

VettingGateway will alert to you if your applicant has spent 6 months or more in any one country and will help you create a message to your applicant to ask them to request this certificate
