Intertek NTA is a certified CHECK Service Provider and a founder member of the scheme, maintaining the highest "green level" status.

IT health checks identify vulnerabilities in IT systems and networks which may compromise the confidentiality, integrity or availability of information held on that IT system. NCSC traditionally provided IT health check services for HMG and the wider public sector of systems handling protectively marked information. Demand for these services has grown and therefore, in line with similar NCSC initiatives, a special partnership with industry is the most appropriate way of meeting this demand.

Companies belonging to CHECK are measured against high standards set by NCSC. Therefore, HMG and CNI customers can be assured that they will receive a high quality service if the work is carried out under the Terms & Conditions of CHECK.
