    When I was on a Nuclear site I wasn't cleared at all, it was going through and during that time I was escorted everywhere, even the loo. The guy would stand outside the cubicle door as I was straining one out. Was horrible, I used to make sure I was empty before work!

          And will be the same now if they are doing things properly on a secure site.

            Yeah, and the site produced 'material' for weapons too...

              Got a quick question. I've been SC cleared since 2007 but my SC lapsed last year when I started my current role which also needs SC but they have been slow to get things sorted so now I've had to re-apply. No big deal, except one of the questions was have I been investigated by the hmrc or dwp?

              I have an open enquiry about a year I used an EBT, I don't want to get into the morality of that, I disclosed this on the form, I just said they have an enquiry open for that tax year but it is not a criminal matter.

              I've not been asked this before on an SC application before, obviously I've been honest and if they want to ask me further questions I'm happy to elaborate. Do you think this could be an issue?

              I'm not guilty of a crime and have disclosed it.

              Thanks in advance.

                You should be fine, its better to disclose it than not disclose it

                I want my account deleted and all of my information removed, I want to invoke my right to be forgotten.

                  I thought the same thing. Not disclosing it would be a massive mistake.

                    Ok I think I've shown due diligence and have trawled this thread for the answer to the question but none seems to be forethcoming so here goes

                    Q : My contract may end before the clearance comes through. Can i check the progress of my sc clearance application anywhere? If I leave the company before i get the clearance, is there a way to know i got cleared?

                    We do not know the answer to this one yet. Hopefully the person that asked this question will appraise us as his circumstances change.
                    My situation is that I'm on a 6 week contract at an MOD site with an expectation to renew at the conclusion of the 6 week period but, you never know. So what I'd like to know is what would be the likely scenario in the event that my application isn't processed by the end of the contract?

                    Would the client put the brakes on the SC application or is it not possible to cancel an application once it has been initiated?

                    If I were to make an intelligent guess I would say that you can probably cancel the application and get a refund up to a certain point in the proceedings but by the time my 6 weeks is up I'll be well past that stage, indeed I'd expect to have the approval by that stage but I'm hearing it can take upwards of 8 weeks sometimes.a

                      Dirk - I'm in a similar situation as yours. Did you have any issues by declaring the HMRC investigation bit
