More Visits

by msecadm4921

Friday, February 17, saw the latest round of SIA compliance visits, as part of what the regulator terms Operation Forewarn.

The SIA reports that its investigators visited the premises of 19 companies to ensure directors of the companies understood their obligations under the Private Security Industry Act 2001, and the consequences of not complying with the legislation when compulsory licensing for contract security staff comes in on March 20.

Not enough

The 19 companies were considered by the SIA to be at risk of not being in a position to be able to supply their customers with enough licensed security staff after March 20. According to the SIA, ‘Operation Forewarn 3’ is part of a wider SIA initiative to ensure understanding and compliance with the law.

Read and sign

During the visits the directors were asked to read and sign a compliance notice acknowledging that they understood the terms of the PSIA 2001, their obligations under the Act, and the consequences on non-compliance with the law. Since January 20, some 71 what the regulatros call ‘high-risk’ security companies have been visited as part of Operation Forewarn. Further visits may follow, the SIA adds.
