SIA approval for Anvil close protection services.

Anvil Group : 20 August, 2007  (Company News)
Anvil Group meets SIA requirements for the provision of close protection services for business personnel at risk whilst travelling.
The Anvil Group has met the stringent requirements set by the Security Industry Association (SIA) for its best-in-class Close Protection Services. The Approved Contractor Scheme ensures that businesses requesting close protection for their Senior Executives or Key Personnel can do so from The Anvil Group in the knowledge that it has attained the UK's most rigorous quality standard for a company operating in this field. The same level of service also applies to business travellers visiting potentially dangerous locations around the world.

International business travel is part of daily life for many corporations, however the reality is that some parts of the world are safer to travel in than others. The Anvil Group provides a range of intelligence led services to protect corporate travellers, including its Travel Risk Intelligence Service (TRIS) and the Employee Travel Monitoring System (ETMS). Providing SIA approved close protection officers is a vitally important part of this overall commitment to ensuring that corporations meet their duty of care obligations to guarantee the health, safety and well-being of employees.

"Our SIA licensed team are all highly trained and experience professionals who uphold The Anvil Group's philosophy of using intelligence to be proactive in anticipating potentially threatening situations and prevent a client being placed in harm's way", comments Anvil Group Director, Matthew Judge. "The Anvil Group is one of a select few SIA approved companies under this classification in the United Kingdom and it is a great honour to receive the SIA's seal of approval."

The objective of the SIA's Approved Contractor Scheme is to raise performance standards and to assist the private security industry in developing new opportunities. The Scheme has been developed under the Private Security Industry Act 2001 and requires the SIA to establish a system of inspection for providers of security services to meet the agreed, stringent standards. Organisations looking to deploy close protection officers within the UK are reminded that it is illegal to deploy officers who are unlicensed, unless approved under the SIA Approved Contractor Scheme.
