SIA Training - CCTV - Security Guarding - Door Supervision - Physical Intervention

The Security Industry Authority (SIA) is the statutory organisation responsible for regulating the private security industry in the UK. Established as a non-departmental public body in 2003, the SIA reports to the Home Secretary under the terms of the Private Security Industry Act 2001.

The two duties of the SIA are to regulate the compulsory licensing of individuals who undertake designated activities within the private security industry and to manage a voluntary Approved Contractor Scheme, which measures private security service suppliers against independently established assessment criteria.

  • It will also improve the public image of the private security industry.

  • Making the industry more attractive to potential employees while protecting the public.
