SIA-ACS and its Applicability and Implementation


SIA-ACS prescribes a systematic control of activities to ensure that the needs and expectations of customers are met.


 SIA-ACS Applicability

SIA-ACS Implementation 

Security Guarding

Registration with the SIA and obtaining a Self-Assessment Workbook (SAW).

Door Supervisors

Working through the workbook to ensure adherence to standards

CCTV Operation

Recording scores and evidence on the ACS Achievement Record available on the SIA Website.

Close Protection

Ensuring that all the standards are met.

Key Holding

Requesting an ACS application pack via the SIA Website.

Cash/Valuables in Transit (CVIT)

Sending the completed application to the SIA together with the prescribed payment and submitting the Online Achievement Record.

Vehicle Immobilization

Selecting an SIA-approved body for verification of the organisation’s self-assessment.  


Compliance with the scheme is presently voluntary.  Many security organizations have now realized that existing and potential clients require security service providers to be SIA-ACS accredited. The accreditation demonstrates the organization’s commitment to providing quality service. Thus, it gives the organization a competitive edge. 

After a verification visit, the application will be considered and approved by the SIA, providing the necessary decision criteria have been fulfilled. Thus the ACS status is confirmed.  Annual re-verifications are to be sought to ensure continuous compliance with the ACS requirements.  In addition, a full verification should be sought every three years.
