The Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) is a voluntary scheme managed by the SIA as part of its remit to “raise performance standards and to assist the private security industry in developing new opportunities”.

"Our Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) provides a recognised hallmark of quality within the private security industry. We assess our approved contractors against 78 different areas of their business. These cover topics as diverse as staff training, financial management and the company’s health and safety policies. When you choose an approved contractor you can be sure that the business you are working with has passed a thorough quality assurance check" -Security Industry Authority
