SIA Takes Lead Role In Establishing New Regime For Security Regulation

Security Industry Authority : 04 November, 2010  (Company News)
A discussion on making progress for regulating the UK security industry has been chaired by the Security Industry Authority
The SIA has been asked by ministers to work with the private security industry and key stakeholders to lead the phased transition to the new regulatory regime announced by Government.

An initial meeting took place yesterday, calling together a number of industry representatives and stakeholders. During this session, the SIA's initial framework for phased transition, reflecting the proposals first set out by Ruth Henig in June this year, was discussed. James Kelly gave an industry view from the Security Alliance.

A framework for the future and a delivery plan will be developed with industry and other stakeholders in the coming months, for presentation to ministers early next year. A further stakeholder meeting will be held in the New Year.

SIA chief executive Bill Butler said: "Currently, the existing regulatory regime - licensing and the Approved Contractor Scheme, remain in place and existing laws will continue to be enforced. All individuals undertaking licensable activity must ensure they have the required SIA licence.

"Work and planning will be underway immediately, but it is not expected that any significant changes will take place before the Olympics in 2012. The phased transition to the new regime will then take place. Subject to agreement, the transition could then be completed by 2014. Any changes will be implemented so as not to disrupt the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014.

"There is now much to be done, and the next step will be for the SIA to establish initial arrangements to work with the industry and stakeholders, including the devolved governments in Scotland and Northern Ireland."

Following the meeting, SIA chairman Ruth Henig said: "We welcome the efforts made so far by the industry to inform the debate and to come together with the SIA to develop and ensure a smooth transition to the new regulatory regime."
