Spotlight Security Limited prides itself on operating at the highest level and our ACS (Approved Contractor Scheme) accreditation proves this. To qualify for the accreditation every company taking part is subject to a stringent vetting and auditing process, this is undertaken by the SIA (Security Industry Authority). The purpose of vetting and auditing is to look at each individual process we have in place to ensure compliance with relevant regulations set out in the ACS criteria. We are pleased to say that we passed with flying colours.
What is the ACS?
The Private Security Industry Act 2001 requires the SIA to establish a “system of inspection for providers of security services, under which those organisations who satisfactorily meet the agreed standards may be registered as approved, and may advertise themselves as such“.
In 2006 the Government, through it’s regulatory body for the security industry, launched the Approved Contractor Scheme. This accreditation was aimed at security companies already operating to the highest standards.
The objective of the SIA’s Approved Contractor scheme is to raise performance standards and to assist the private security industry in developing new opportunities. The scheme is voluntary and was developed in consultation with representatives from across the industry; it only covers those parts of the industry that are regulated by the SIA and the Private Security Industry Act 2001 (as amended).
