BSIA Supports Single Industry Voice On New Regulatory Regime

British Security Industry Association (BSIA) : 02 November, 2010  (Company News)
The Security Alliance has committed to be "transparent and consensual" in operating for the UK security industry thus forming a new basis for regulation
The Government's announcement on 14 October that there will be a phased transition to a new regulatory system was given a cautious welcome by the Security Alliance on 15 October. Since then, the stakeholders in industry who formed that Alliance have met and agreed that they will act in a transparent and consensual way to reflect the security industry's views as a single voice and will work with central and devolved governments, the current regulator and other partners to formulate the basis of the new regulation and regulatory body.

In light of Government comments and discussion with the SIA, it is clear that there will be no change to the current regulatory requirement for licensing, compliance and other elements of the Private Security Industry Act 2001 including the Approved Contractors' Scheme until a new regulatory system is established. In other words, it is business as usual and licensing will continue and will be phased seamlessly into the new regulatory system when that system has been agreed.

The Security Alliance will now hold discussions with the Government, the SIA and engage with all elements of the Industry affected by licensing with the aim of working towards a smarter regulatory system which rewards responsible behaviour and compliance. Industry will be able to express its voice through sector-specific, Scottish and Northern Ireland working groups, which will be set up within the Alliance to discuss and reflect particular elements of the Industry's views.

Membership of the Security Alliance includes ASIS, the British Security Industry Association (BSIA), International Professional Security Association (IPSA), The Security Institute, the NSI, SSAIB, Worship Company of Security Practitioners, Skills for Security, City of London Crime Prevention Association and representatives of the Scottish security industry. The Security Alliance encourages all security industry stakeholders who have not yet joined the Alliance to do so.
