Security Guards: Licensing

Volume 486: debated on Wednesday 14 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the Security Investment Authority will conduct its cost-benefit assessment on the potential requirement for licence holders to provide evidence that they have kept their competency up-to-date when applying for a renewal of their licence. (245944)

The Security Industry Authority (SIA) is working on an assessment of the costs and benefits of the introduction of a requirement for licence holders, including door supervisors, to provide evidence that they have kept their competency up to date, when applying for licence renewal. If it is decided that this proposal merits further development, a public consultation would be undertaken before any amendments are made to the SIA's competency framework for the issue of licences.
