First Irish Licensing Year A Success

Security Industry Authority : 02 December, 2010  (Company News)
Over 9000 licences have been issued during the last year to security professionals in Ireland after licensing rules became applicable in the country
SIA licensing, introduced 1 December, 2009, has now been in place in Northern Ireland for one year.

In the past 12 months, 9163 licences have been issued to individuals living in the country; and there are 51 Approved Contractor Scheme companies based or operating in Northern Ireland.

During the past year, SIA investigators have conducted operations throughout the country, conducting targeted checks of more than 300 security operatives. The most recent SIA inspections reveal current high compliance of 99.5% in Northern Ireland.

Chief executive Bill Butler said: "The level of compliance we have seen in just the first year of licensing demonstrates that the security industry in Northern Ireland has recognised the value of SIA regulation, and that operatives and companies have worked hard to ensure that they meet the legal requirements.

"It is also very encouraging to see so many ACS companies operating in Northern Ireland, as well as the high number of licences issued to individuals."
