Licence Conditions


SIA licences are issued subject to certain conditions, which you must abide by.

If you do not we may:

  • Issue you with a written warning, which can be taken into account in future licensing or enforcement decisions.
  • Revoke or suspend your licence.
  • Prosecute you - contravening licence conditions is a criminal offence under Section 9 of the Private Security Industry Act 2001, the maximum penalty for which is six months imprisonment and/or a fine of up to £5,000

Front Line Staff

Front line staff must:

  • Wear the licence where it can be seen at all times when engaging in designated licensable activity unless you have reported it lost or stolen, or it is in our possession.*
  • Tell us and the police in writing as soon as practicable if your licence is lost or stolen.
  • Tell us in writing as soon as practicable of any convictions, cautions or warnings, or charges for relevant offences whether committed in the UK or abroad.
  • Tell us in writing of any changes to your name or address as soon as practicable.
  • Not deface or change the licence in any way (should your licence become damaged, you should advise us and request a replacement).
  • Not wear a licence that has been defaced or altered in any way.
  • Produce the licence for inspection on the request of any constable, any member or employee of the SIA or other person authorised by the SIA.
  • Return the licence to us as soon as practicable if you are asked to do so.
  • Tell us in writing as soon as practicable of any change to your right to remain or work in the UK.
