Last month we received our Certificate of Approval from the Security Industry Authority confirming that we have continued to meet the requirements needed to be part of their Approved Contractor Scheme.
The Security Industry Authority (SIA) is an independent organisation responsible for regulating the private security industry in the UK. They report directly to the Home Office and work to develop high standards of professionalism and service throughout the industry.
What is the Approved Contractor Scheme?
The Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) is a set of performance and operational standards for those operating within the private security sector.
The scheme is voluntary, but to become an approved contractor, companies must meet the standards set out by the scheme annually. If they meet the standards, they are awarded Approved Contractor status.
Approved Contractor status is independent proof of the company’s commitment to quality and customer service. It also gives clients the confidence that their supplier has been rigorously assessed in terms of quality and best practice; a great seal of approval.
Neil Windsor, Operations Director of KeyPlus, commented on the approval, saying “We’re pleased to have been awarded Approved Contractor status for another year. Although the ACS is a voluntary scheme, we see it as essential to ensure we are independently recognised for our commitment to quality and customer service.
“The annual accreditation means we have continued to show our dedication to the business and to the industry as a whole.”
