When clearance is required at CTC, SC and DV levels the Law Officers' Departments uses the Defence Business Services National Security Vetting. In some specific cases the Attorney-General's Office might also ask the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to conduct this vetting.

All checks are carried out in accordance with Cabinet Office guidelines.
