SIA Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) Routes to Approval

CCAS is delighted to announce that with effect from the 1st April 2017, the Security Industry Authority (SIA) approved CCAS as one of only two certification bodies to carry out assessments to either the ACS Standard Route or ACS Passport Scheme.

To date, CCAS has assessed in excess of 250 security firms to the Approved Contractor Scheme across the United Kingdom, since it was first launched in February 2006.

The SIA Approved Contractor Scheme is based upon widely recognised business improvement models: ISO 9001 and the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) Excellence Model™. The Scheme also references the British Standard codes of practice applicable to the private security industry and conformance to the relevant codes is built into the ACS requirements.

There are two routes to approval, either the Standard Route or the CCAS Passport Route, each designed to meet the same challenging requirements.

CCAS two routes to approval are as follows:

      ACS Standard Route          

              CCAS Passport Scheme Approval
