The UK security team recently completed the first of three National Security Inspectorate (NSI) Guarding Gold and Security Industry Authority (SIA) Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) audits for 2019.
The NSI is the leading certification body for the security and fire protection sectors in the UK. They operate a two-tier approach to approvals, with the Gold level designed for companies wishing to meet the industry’s highest standards
The SIA ACS has been designed in consultation with representatives from across the industry, and approval is not only a source of confidence for buyers of security services, but it also provides a framework for setting, improving and monitoring our own standards.
Apleona’s audit commenced at Colworth Science Park in Bedfordshire, where the company delivers security services on behalf of a number of clients. A further audit was completed at the company’s London head office, concluding with an ACS scoring session for 2019/20.
Apleona achieved a score of 162 out of the highest possible score of 172, placing the company in the top five per cent of all UK security providers.
Peter Young, Apleona UK FM Managing Director, said: “Being approved to the SIA ACS demonstrates that we are committed to customer service and means that our clients can rest assured that we deliver to the highest possible standards.
“The fantastic score achieved is testament to our teams and our commitment to their ongoing development together with the constant forward planning as to how we work smarter in delivering service excellence on behalf of our clients.”
