SIA extends licensing to Northern Ireland

Security Industry Authority : 11 May, 2009  (Company News)
Personnel working in private security industry roles in Northern Ireland now have access to licensing from the SIA
Licence applications are now being accepted by the Security Industry Authority from individuals working in the private security industry in Northern Ireland.

Applications are also being welcomed from security suppliers wishing to apply for the SIA's Approved Contractor Scheme.

Andy Drane, SIA Acting Chief Executive and leader of the implementation programme, said: "SIA regulation in Northern Ireland will ensure standards of training and professionalism in the private security industry are the same across the whole of United Kingdom.

"From 1 December 2009, the public will benefit from one regulator and one licensing scheme, which will allow them to have confidence in a regulated and trusted industry."

John Montague, SIA Head of Investigation for Northern Ireland, said: "Our priority is to communicate with all sectors of the security industry in Northern Ireland to help them understand the benefits of regulation and what they need to do to comply with the legislation. A number of people and organisations have already started to make good progress towards getting licensed. We advise all companies and individuals not to underestimate the time and resources it takes to get licensed and we urge those yet to start the licensing process to do so now."
