What the Security Vetting Appeals Panel does

The Security Vetting Appeals Panel is an independent avenue of appeal for individuals in government departments, the armed forces, the police and other organisations, or from those employed by contractors of those departments and organisations, a final means of challenging a decision to refuse or withdraw national security vetting. The SVAP is not available to candidates for recruitment or employment (who have no formal rights of appeal against adverse vetting decisions if their applications are rejected on security grounds) or to staff and contractors of the Security and Intelligence Agencies (who have their own separate arrangements).

SVAP is an advisory non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Cabinet Office.
