Sia Accreditations

Following a parliamentary review, the SIA has recommended a systematic and transformational approach to its regulations - a result supported by WINNS Services and Small Business Network (SBN). The SBN is a security industry body made up of leading private security firms.
The Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) is part of SIA, the regulatory body for the UK security industry. The Private Security Industry Act (2001) requires the SIA to establish a platform which allows for the inspection of security services to ensure that the agreed upon standards within the industry are being met, and if fulfilled, the organisations can then advertise themselves as being an Approved Contractor. The main function of the ACS is to raise and maintain the standards and to support the private security industry in increasing and developing new opportunities.
What is SIA Accreditations? The objective of the SIA's Approved Contractor scheme is to raise performance standards and to assist the private security industry in developing new opportunities. The scheme is voluntary and was developed in consultation with representatives from across the industry; it only covers those parts of the industry that are regulated by the SIA and the Private Security Industry Act 2001 (as amended). There is a single scheme, with sector-specific approval based on a relevant set of qualifying criteria.
