The Security Industry Authority is holding a consultation to gauge the views of stakeholders on its draft Business Plan for 2015/16 and Corporate Plan for 2015/18.

The consultation sets out the SIA’s high-level draft plans, and it describes the SIA’s proposed mission, vision and strategic goals.

At the SIA Stakeholder Conference in October, SIA Chair, Elizabeth France, set out the progress that the SIA had made in working closely with stakeholders to develop proposals for a new regulatory regime focused on businesses. Mrs France emphasised that the SIA is ready to take forward mandatory business licensing if and when the Government confirms its intentions. The SIA will not allow that question to distract it from using its existing powers in an audacious way to support the continued progress towards a better, quicker, and lower cost approach to regulation, with greater business engagement.

Elizabeth France, SIA Chair said:

“I announced at our conference that we would consult with stakeholders and seek views on our proposals. We want to ensure that the next phase of our work reflects the views and priorities of those who buy, supply, and rely on private security.

“Our consultation asks whether you agree or disagree with our proposals and seeks any views or comments you wish to make. We shall consider any feedback you give us and take it in to account before publishing our final plan early in 2015.”

The consultation is available on the SIA website, and it runs from 4 December 2014 to 30 January 2015.
