Companies to be Licensed

Posted by:

Bill Butler, SIA Chief Executive has outlined that he expects the new regulatory body to change from licensing individuals to licensing companies, with those companies who are already Approved Contractors under the ACS scheme automatically transferring as licensed.

This is something many in the industry advocated when the Private Security Industry act and licensing were first introduced. As Butler went on to say in March’s Professional Security Magazine “ ..they didn’t clean up the gambling industry and get the Kray twins out of casinos by licensing the croupiers. They stopped the Krays from having a business”.

Perhaps the same should have applied from the start in the security industry, but at least it appears we are moving in the right direction.
