Regent Security

Leading security association welcomes Regent

The UK's leading member body representing the professional security industry in the UK has welcomed Regent Security to its membership.

Members of the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) provide over 70% of UK security products and services and adhere to strict quality standards.

Maintaining high standards within the industry is a top priority of the Association and it places rigorous requirements on companies wishing to become members.


The BSIA draws up industry codes of practice and technical documents, often then submitting documents for consideration as British Standards. Its representatives work on European standards committees to ensure that these will meet the practical needs of the industry and its customers.

The 2006-formed 'Skills for Security' incorporates the Security Industry Training Organisation, the BSIA's training subsidiary, divested from the Association to form the new skills body.

The BSIA is working with 2006-formed ‘Skills for Security', alongside other key industry stakeholders, to help to establish a stronger skills foundation to further benefits for the industry and its people.

Regent Security director Andrew Hallam is delighted to be joining the BSIA. "The association calls for support, education and high standards of professionalism," he says. "These are qualities we share, making membership more appropriate in a mutual quest for best practice."
