BS 7960:2016 DOOR SUPERVISION – CODE OF PRACTISE
Ci5 Security holds membership by Royal Charter with British Standards
The BS 7960:2016 standard is very important standard for Door Supervision BS series.
BS 7960:2016 specifies the requirements of a Door Supervisor
The Security Industry Authority (SIA) is responsible for regulating the private security industry. An SIA licence is required if you undertake the licensable activities of a door supervisor. Unless your employer or company has been given an exemption under Section 4(4) of the Private Security Industry Act 2001, it is a criminal offence to undertake the licensable activities of a door supervisor without an SIA licence. Conformity with the recommendations in BS 7960 can demonstrate compliance with the SIA’s licence requirements.
Why we work to the Door Supervision – Code of Practice as a company
We work with the BS 7960:2016 Door supervision standard as a company as we are passionate about what we do, we have professional proof in the work we have and continue to do for our clients, other security companies often turn to us for advice on a weekly basis, we have saved many licenced premises from closure and had their licences amended after many trouble free months, we have never failed at saving a licence working alongside Police Licencing across London with some big names in the business, to reach the same goal for the clients, names available on request.
Management have worked with other companies subcontracting and have saved small cocktail bars to 2 floor super clubs from closure (proof available).
We are extremely proud of our record and have received respect for what we do from the authorities gaining trust and commendations from District Police Commanders, the way we conduct business for security is unrivalled, we have not seen other security or venue managers do what we can, often we see venues failing due to management not having a clue leading to loss of customers, lack of revenues and imminent closure eventually, this is a few reasons managers and security companies come and go regularly.
Do you Consult in section 161 to 166 of the Licensing Act 2003 closure notices?
Management can be deployed for Door Supervision Consultancy when life gets tough, we have a specialist team of Expert Security Door Supervisors we can deploy immediately on standby for Review of a Premises Licence, following a Closure Notice or even leading up to one by official warning. We will help save you from closure. Rates are depending on preventive work to be undertaken measured with severity of circumstances with our risk assessment.
