What is involved in a background check for an MSIC?
AusCheck, a unit of the Attorney General's Department, is now responsible for coordinating the background checks of MSIC applicants and people who are involved in the issue of MSICs.
The Background checking process includes an assessment of:
- A criminal records check undertaken by the Australian Federal Police, which is used to determine if an applicant has an adverse criminal record;
- A security assessment conducted by the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO); and
- If the applicant is not an Australian citizen, confirmation that the applicant has a right to work in Australia.
