Based on the security clearance legislation a national Facility Security Clearance can be awarded to a Finnish company contracting with a public organization when sensitive government information is being processed at the facility. The national FSC certificate is valid for five years.

Nixu obtained the national Facility Security Clearance through a process initiated by the Finnish Defence Forces. FSC is often required as a proof that a company can be trusted to handle sensitive information properly when participating in national or international ventures or submitting a tender. The Finnish Defence Forces will audit Nixu regularly to ensure continuous compliance. The auditing process covers administrative, physical, personnel and information security aspects of a company's operations.

The national safety authority provides the Facility Security Clearance required for the fulfilment of international information security obligations as prescribed in the legislation on international information security obligations. An international clearance is awarded on the basis of the national clearance.
