In order to help organisations gain a greater understanding of the Security Industry Authority’s requirements and the impact business licensing will have on the services organisations currently provide, the National Security Inspectorate (NSI) will be holding two complimentary half-day seminars at its headquarters in Maidenhead on 26 February 2014.
With the Security Industry Authority (SIA) recently announcing that it will be accepting applications for business licensing from April 2014, the NSI seminars will be of interest to those organisations working in the relevant licensable sectors* and will include presentations from industry experts.
There will also be an opportunity for attendees to ask questions related to their organisations’ circumstances.
The following content will be included within the seminars:
• The fundamental requirements of business licensing
• How to demonstrate competence in order to gain a business licence
• The penalties for operating without a business licence
• Timeframes and why it’s important to act quickly
Kay Aitkin, the NSI’s services delivery director, explained: “It’s vital for organisations providing licensable activities to be prepared for business licensing. The NSI understands the impact this will have and, through our seminars, we aim to educate and prepare organisations for this fundamental change.”
