Consultation begun on generic SIA licences

Security Industry Authority : 15 September, 2009  (Company News)
The SIA is inviting views on the way it should license individual security operators to improve the process of issuing licences
The Security Industry Authority is calling for views on whether a generic SIA licence should be introduced.

At present, SIA licence cards are specific to each sector. Operatives working in more than one sector may need to be issued with multiple licences.

The two options set out in the consultation are:

• to introduce a single generic licence card covering all of the licensable activities that the holder is qualified to undertake; or
• to continue to issue sector-specific and multiple licences.

If option one were introduced, all licence cards would look the same. Information on the licensable activities the holder is legally able to undertake would be accessed through the publicly available online register.

The potential benefits are that a single licence would reduce the need to hold and display multiple licences, which would reduce burden for the holder and may also lower the cost of holding more than one licence.

Anyone wishing to give their views should complete the response form available on the SIA website by Friday 18 December.

SIA director of strategy and corporate services Hazel Russell said: "We are always looking for ways to reduce the administrative burdens on licence holders. We hope this consultation generates a lot of interest which could lead eventually to improvements to the way that we license individual operatives working in the UK private security industry."
