In January 2022, new regulation was introduced relating to airside ID passes. This requires what is known as an Accreditation Check to be performed for every new airside pass issued or renewed from 1 January 2022. 

The regulation also requires all existing passholders, such as those who held an airside pass prior to 1 January 2022 and have not needed a renewal, to have an Accreditation Check by 1 July 2024

Authorised Signatory Nomination

Authorised signatory nominations can be submitted via AirportGateway

Use the links below to find out more information on the process of using HMRC employment history data as an alternative to the standard approach of employment referencing.

Due to ramp up and to assist stakeholder operations, we have created a process which eliminates the 12-month referencing requirement for any applicant who has acquired a valid and granted Accreditation Check.

This Temporary Employment (AC) Security interview should only be used if the Applicant has acquired a granted Accreditation Check within the last twelve months.
