The SIA Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) is a voluntary programme set up by the Security Industry Authority (SIA). The ACS works with the business license to set standards for suppliers in the private security services sector. Businesses already approved under the ACS will still need to apply for the business license; the ACS will represent a voluntary additional approval for businesses wishing to demonstrate higher compliance and quality. Businesses can apply for this approval once they are granted a business license.
Once ACS has been achieved your customers, prospective customers and employees will be re-assured that they are working with a security company that has been measured against and has met a rigorous set of independently assessed standards.
