ACS Fast Track Route to be Withdrawn from Start of April

Security Industry Authority : 26 March, 2010  (Company News)
With the fast track route to Approved Contractor Status having served its purpose since its introduction, the Security Industry Authority is now withdrawing the route from the 1st of April 2010
The SIA is to withdraw the Fast Track approval route to gaining Approved Contractor Status from 1 April 2010.

Industry feedback received during the 2008 review of the ACS scheme was that Fast Track had served its purpose and should be withdrawn.

Fast Track application was put in place to allow security contractors with certain existing approvals a Fast Track first time entry route into ACS. After being available for four years in England and Wales, three years in Scotland and one year in Northern Ireland it is to be phased out. This will simplify the ACS application process and help to reduce the risk of non-conformance with the ACS standard.

In April 2008, the SIA published its response to the ACS Review and agreed to phase out the Fast Track route but only after it had been made available in Northern Ireland. The SIA will cease accepting applications for Fast Track approval from 1 April 2010. This has been agreed by the Home Office.
