UK Security associations form alliance

International Professional Security Association (IPSA) : 15 October, 2008  (Company News)
Document of understanding between IPSA and FSA creates cohesion between different fields of the security and fire industry
The International Professional Security Association (IPSA) and the Fire and Security Association (FSA) have signed a high level Memorandum of Understanding, designed to improve industry cohesion and provide a sound platform of representation for their respective memberships and the industry as a whole.

Head of the FSA, Stefan Hay said: " Although the FSA is solely a representative body for companies working in the fire and security systems industry, we recognise that there can be overlaps with IPSA for example in the subjects of CCTV surveillance, alarm response, sector education and Risk Management to name but a few. This strategic alliance is mutually beneficial in that it allows our organisations to pool expertise, share intelligence and resources and develop a cohesive response, where applicable, to issues affecting our respective members and the entire sector".

Through this collaboration, the two associations aim to provide reciprocal promotion, recommendation and referral and raise awareness of the advantages and benefits of joining either the FSA or IPSA. Each party intends to seek every opportunity to consult and involve the other in joint events, projects and activities and to demonstrate to sector employers that they and their staff have a choice in determining their sector representation.

IPSA Chief Executive Officer, Justin Bentley said: "IPSA welcomes the opportunity for joint activities and collaboration with the FSA and its member companies and also the sharing of expertise and representation across an enlarged body of companies and individuals. IPSA is active in promoting professionalism, higher qualifications and in participating in those industry committees, at various levels, where existing standards are revised and updated. Those engaged in both FSA and IPSA areas of activity will, through their membership, be able to access additional benefits as a result of this partnership".
