Quality Assurance and codes of practice
We have held certification for quality assurance standard known as BS EN ISO 9001 since November 1997. This is an ongoing process of quality examination that involves internal audits and independent external audits. The Private Security Industry Act of 2001 implements the Licensing of Security Guards and Key holders by the regulatory body known as ‘The Security Industry Authority.’ To obtain ‘Approved Contractor Status’ we have in place operating and recruitment procedures in compliance with BS 7499 (Static Guarding and Mobile Patrol Services), BS7858 (Security Screening of personnel employed in a security environment) & BS7984. (Key Holding and Response Services). These procedures meet the requirements of our Insurance Company. It has been a criminal offence since March 2006 for anyone to supply or for a customer to use an unlicensed Security Guard or Key Holder.
