SIA to host future of regulation conference

An event to discuss future regulation of the private security industry is being held by the Security Industry Authority.

The SIA conference – Phased Transition to a New Regulatory Regime – will take place in central London on Wednesday 30 March. It will provide the opportunity to discuss the phased transition, as announced by the Cabinet Office in October, and for the SIA to both inform and consult with stakeholders.

The purpose of the conference is to consider plans and timelines for the transition, the future of regulation in the private security industry and security requirements for the London Olympics and Paralympics 2012. As well as keynote speakers there will be breakout sessions to discuss specific topics in greater detail.

This year, the SIA will host two conferences instead of the usual annual event. This is to ensure that there is adequate opportunity for consultation and discussion as plans for the new regulatory regime are developed. The second event will be held later in the year.

Places for the March conference are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. For further information and to download the booking form visit:
