The SIA ACS (Security Industry Authority Approved Contractor Scheme) is the only recognised scheme to standardise organisations operating within the private security sector.
The standard was designed by members of the security industry in consultation with the Private Security Industry Act 2001. The SIA ACS includes elements of widely recognised business improvement models including ISO 9001 and the European Foundation for Quality Management Excellence Model. The scheme therefore proves not only your competency in security practices, but also demonstrates your continued investment in improving your operational efficiency.
Why seek SIA ACS certification?
Your potential clients are increasingly making SIA ACS approval mandatory for their security service providers. So, while the scheme is voluntary, achieving SIA Approved Contractor Scheme status strengthens your position in the private security industry and can improve your eligibility.
