Scottish SIA contractor scheme forum.

Security Industry Authority : 27 February, 2008  (Company News)
The UK Security Industry Authority hits the road and heads to Scotland at the end of February to discuss Scottish licensing impacts with contractors.
The Security Industry Authority (SIA), the body that regulates individuals working in the private security industry will be holding its first Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) forum in Scotland.

The ACS forum will be held at a major hotel in Edinburgh on 28th February and will be an opportunity for Scottish security companies to discuss the impact of licensing since it was introduced in Scotland last November.

The SIA is using this and its attendance at the Scottish Licensed Trade News (SLTN) Hospitality Show on the 27th /28th February, to advise the security industry of its legal obligations and to help drive up compliance levels.

Senior members of the SIA will be present at both events to give advice and guidance to those working in the security industry. The forum will also be an opportunity for the SIA to discuss the benefits of being an Approved Contractor, to provide information about licensing and a chance for delegates to share good practice.

The SIA is particularly keen to engage with members of the hospitality sector in advance of the tourist season to advise them of their legal obligations.

Head of Investigation in Scotland, Jennifer Pattinson, said:

"We have had positive feedback from similar forums in England and Wales. The SIA is looking forward to repeating the same success in Scotland. As this is our first opportunity to liaise with the industry since licensing became mandatory, we hope that we can build strong relationships for the future and ensure that compliance and standards continue to rise amongst Scottish security companies.

"With Scotland's lively festival and event scene, we want to speak with members of the tourism and hospitality sector to ensure they are aware of their new responsibilities."
