Atlas Professionals is a Maritime Security Identification Card (MSIC) authorised issuing body (only applicable in Australia).
A MSIC is an Australian nationally recognised identification card. It is issued to recognise people who have met the background security check requirements of the national information-sharing service provider for Australia's police, wider law enforcement and national security agencies (CrimTrac) and the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO), through AusCheck and therefore met the minimum security requirements needed to work in an Australian maritime security zone.
A MSIC is an essential requirement for any personnel needing to work in a port or on ships within a maritime security zone.
