Private Security Industry Regulation in Northern Ireland Consultation: We are seeking your views

29 May 2012

The Department of Justice (Northern Ireland) has launched a consultation on future regulation of the private security industry in Northern Ireland.

The Security Industry Authority (SIA) currently regulates specified sectors of the private security industry in Northern Ireland. Following the Public Bodies Review in 2010, the Coalition Government announced that the SIA would no longer be a Non Departmental Public Body and that there would be a transition to a new regulatory regime in England and Wales.

The Justice Minister asked that a piece of work be undertaken to develop options for the future regulation of the private security industry here. This consultation forms part of the policy development.

The BPA is seeking to respond on behalf of our members on this particular topic. If you operate services in Northern Ireland and would like to provide your input, please send your responses to Dave Smith by13th July 2012. You are also encouraged to submit a response independently.
