MoD or other secure government sites – Security criteria

The MoD/other security procedures may take precedence in dealing with security risk and therefore the Secured by Design criteria under which this issue is assessed may not be appropriate.

However, BREEAM will require that a Suitably Qualified Security Specialist/Consultant (SQSS/C), such as the MoD security consultant, should be consulted during or prior to the concept design stage or equivalent, and the final design must embody the recommendations / solutions of the MoD security consultant, in line with the security criteria.
