What is the SIA - ACS?

The Security Industry Association Approved Contactors Scheme (SIA-ACS), aims to enhance performance standards across the industry and help organisations meet quality guidelines in future. Companies within the scheme are regularly inspected by the SIA, and can advertise themselves as being compliant once they have met the conditions of the standard.

How is the SIA-ACS Assessed?

Based on the framework of the ISO 9001 quality management structure and referencing British Standard codes for the security industry, your organisation is assessed in the following areas to be certified under the SIA Approved Contractor Scheme:

  • Strategic decision-making
  • Quality of business processes
  • Commercial relationship management
  • Financial management
  • Resources management
  • Human resources management
  • Leadership qualities
  • Corporate social responsibility
  • Results and deliverables

In order to achieve accreditation, your business must prove to independent SIA inspectors that you have planned, implemented and future-proofed your organisation in all of these nine areas.

What are the Benefits of SIA-ACS?

Although certification is entirely voluntary, gaining Approved Contractors status from the SIA signals to your customers, staff and the wider business community that you are a professional and responsible organisation with high quality management and staff. The hallmark of a top standard security firm, SIA-ACS qualification will also open new doors for your business and help streamline your day-to-day operations, helping your company grow and succeed.
