AusCheck

We provide fast, fair and reliable background checking services to enhance national security and to advance national interests.

AusCheck conducts background checking services for the Aviation Security Identification Card (ASIC), Maritime Security Identification Card (MSIC), and National Health Security (NHS) check schemes.

We coordinate criminal and national security background checking and identify individuals who are not eligible to access secure areas of aviation, maritime or national health facilities. AusCheck operates on a cost recovery basis and maintains a comprehensive database of all applicants and cardholders.

To check the status of an ASIC, MSIC or NHS application, contact the organisation you lodged your application through. The majority of applications are processed by AusCheck within six weeks.
