05 Jun SIA
At KCS Compliance we support organisations implement and retain accreditations. The following sets out SIA and who may benefit from having this accreditation.
The Security Industry Authority (SIA) introduced the Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) to raise performance standards within the security industry. The ACS is the quality benchmark within security, and sets out criteria that companies must adhere to in order to be SIA ACS Approved.
Whilst currently being a voluntary scheme, many security companies are finding that existing and potential clients are requiring security service providers to be SIA ACS accredited. Becoming an SIA ACS Approved company demonstrates to your customers that your company has a commitment to providing a quality service, and therefore gives you a competitive edge.
The first stage of your SIA ACS accreditation is to complete the substantial SIA online Workbook. This document requires that you complete more than 90 statements about your company, providing evidence of how you meet each of the requirements of the SIA ACS.
If you’d like to know more about SIA or any other accreditation, get in touch today and we can support you through the whole process to securing an accreditation relevant to your business.
