CCAS Accred Passport SchemeThe purpose of the CCAS passport scheme is to reduce time and money for security firms that hold multiple approvals whereby combined assessments are undertaken collectively to the requirements of recognised standards such as ISO 9001, Security screening of individuals employed in a security environment to BS 7858, the Product Certification Standard for Security Firms etc.

The CCAS Passport scheme requirements exceed the requirements of the ACS standard and the assessment process is carried out in a cost effective efficient way.

By achieving the CCAS Passport Scheme Approval, successful security firms will gain the following awards:

  1. ISO 9001:2015 (UKAS Accredited)
  2. Security Product Certification to BS7858 and the relevant security code of practice e.g. BS7499 (UKAS Accredited)
  3. The SIA Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) Standard.

To qualify to be assessed under the CCAS Passport Scheme it is a requirement for applicants to pass the CCAS due diligence criteria e.g. to have no county court judgements, the Directors not to have liquidated a company within the last 12 months etc. In addition, applicants must have been operating for a minimum of six months and have held contract/s in place for the same period. Once the applicant security company has met the CCAS due diligence criteria, the applicant can proceed (dependent on their current status), to being assessed at either stage 1 and or at the Initial Stage 2 Assessment.

Activities/sectors we are approved to certificate under the Passport Scheme: 

  • Door Supervision 
  • Key holding 
  • Public Space Surveillance (CCTV) 
  • Security Guarding. 

Assessment Criteria  

The assessment criteria for the Passport Scheme is ISO 9001:2015 Product Certification to the Security British Standard Codes of Practice ie BS 7858 and the relevant BS security codes of practice within the scope of assessment e.g. BS7499. SIA Regulator Principles CCAS Passport Scheme Specification Technical Note. The process for attaining approval to the CCAS Passport scheme can be found here.

Please note that by achieving the passport scheme with CCAS does not automatically guarantee certification to the Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) as ultimately the final decision is determined by the SIA.

By carrying out assessments in this manner this reduces the burden of multiple assessments, duplication of work and eliminates unnecessary additional site visits. This in turn saves time and money for security companies that hold multiple standards.
