Guarding Security Services – Licensing & Standards

I.S. 999 – Guarding Services Standard

I.S. 999, the guarding services standard, provides a specification for the operations of a company providing static guarding services, mobile guarding security services, door security services (DSP) or event security services.

The requirements of the standard are broken into three broad areas:

  1. Company Organisation
  2. Staffing and
  3. Training

Companies who require a Static Guarding licence or Door Security (DSP) license must be audited against the requirements of I.S. 999 by a Private Security Authority approved certification body.
