  • businesses operating in designated areas of the private security industry will require annual licensing
  • registration of employees to confirm identity, address history, right to work, qualifications and criminal record checks are to continue, with responsibility of the registration and application process to transfer to the business through a more automated online approach
  • development of training standards to be transferred to a suitable industry skills body
  • no changes are proposed to the ACS voluntary scheme for the time being
