REMINDER – Working without an SIA licence is a criminal offence

18/10/2010

We wish to remind all security operatives undertaking licensable activity, and those deploying them, that it remains a criminal offence to do so without an SIA licence.

The Government has announced a phased transition to a new regulatory regime. However, this will take some time to put into place. Until that time, the current law continues to apply.

The SIA and other agencies will continue to enforce these offences. The maximum penalty for working without a licence is six months imprisonment and/or a fine of £5,000. The maximum penalty for deploying unlicensed staff is five years imprisonment and/or an unlimited fine.
