Aviation Security Identification Card (ASIC)
An Aviation Security Identification Card (ASIC) is used to identify a person who has been the subject of a background check, for the purpose of obtaining unescorted access to the secure areas (including the airside) of security-controlled airports that have regular public transport (RPT) services.
ASICs are valid for up to two years.
A person has an operational need to hold a red or grey ASIC if they have a requirement for frequent access to all or part of a secure area of an airport where persons are required to display an ASIC, including those checking in passengers or handling baggage. Known consignors who do not access secure areas at an airport may need a white ASIC to meet US air cargo security requirements.
Visitors who need access to the airside area or any landside security zone of an airport need ot wear a Visitor Identification Card (VIC) and they must be supervised by a person displaying a valid ASIC. VICs are issued by the airport being visited.
To qualify for an ASIC applicants must be cleared. This involves a criminal records check, a national security assessment by ASIO and an immigration check. We submit each applicant’s details to SecurityID for this to occur and pay the relevant fees.
Let us manage not only the initial application for an ASIC for yourself or your employees, but also the ongoing management of these applications, including the renewal process which occurs every two years.
