The Security Industry Authority has released the following update on their new licensing system.
“Happy New Year from the SIA – we hope that you have had a safe start to 2017.
“The number of licence decisions that we made in December was 7,380. From the introduction of the new system in July 2016 to the end of 2016, we made 46,444 licence decisions.
“Our document handling centre was able to meet the target of returning documents within five days throughout the Christmas and New Year period and has continued this into January.
“A problem with non-front line licence renewal, which appeared just before Christmas, has been fixed by our supplier. If you need to renew a non-front line licence you will now be able to do so.”
