The Australian Government uses three information security classifications including: Protected, Secret and Top Secret. These three security classifications are based on the likely damage resulting from compromise of the information's confidentiality. The security classification to shred to, is determined by protective markings and in accordance with the Business Impact Level.

Approved High Security Paper Shredders used by the Australian government are referred to Class A and Class B paper shredders. These certified paper shredding machines can be used for the destruction of information sensitive and security classified, paper based information including Protected, Secret and Top Secret.

Some High Security Shredders include a dual function and have the ability to destroy optical media discs (CD, DVD) via a dedicated feed entry. Shredders of this design often incorporate two waste collection bins to separate shredded waste. This dual high security shredder design, supplied by INFOSTOP is NSA approved and shreds paper to a Class A standard.
