About This Standard.

These standards provide the framework for private security companies (PSCS) or those contracting them to: 

Establish, implement, operate, monitor, review, maintain and improve the management of security operations within hostile and compromised environments; including those where governance is weak and the law is undermined by human or naturally caused events.

Is This Standard For You? 

These standards are delivered through a plan-do-check-act approach and provide the means for organisations involved in, or, utilising security services to demonstrate commitments to the relevant existing legal obligations, which is vital for retaining stakeholder confidence.

If you are looking to join the International Code of Conduct Association (ICoCA) you will need to be certified to PSC.1:2012/ISO18788 by April 2020 or, if you are already an ICoCA transitional member company or joined after April 2018, you need to complete certification within 2 years of joining.
