  • The Private Security Industry Act 2001 outlines a system for the statutory regulations for the Private Security Industry.
  • The SIA has two main responsibilities; the first one is the compulsory licensing of individuals working within the specific sector of the Private Security Industry. The second is to measure the Approved Contractor Scheme; this is designed to measure Private Security Companies against a set of independently assessed criteria’s.
  • The SIA Approved Contractor Scheme introduced a set of Operational & Performance Standards for Companies who provide security services. This is a voluntary scheme and the Companies who choose to apply for the Approved Contractor status must meet the set standards before achieving the “ACS” status award.
  • Guardforce Security Services is proud to have achieved our Approved Contractor status from the SIA in August 2006 for the scope of Security Guarding & Keyholding. 
  • In order to maintain our ACS status for the provision of security guarding and Key holding services, our company is audited on an annual basis.
