The contractor Kingdom has again increased their overall accreditation score in their annual SIA (Security Industry Authority) ACS (Approved Contractor Scheme) assessment.
Kingdom’s score of +167 passes last year’s of +161. The maximum overall score that can be achieved is +174.
To be accredited under the scheme, security companies must voluntarily submit themselves for annual inspection by one of five UKAS inspection bodies appointed by the SIA. They must achieve a score of at least zero (which is considered to be a satisfactory score) to receive ACS accreditation.
Kingdom’s annual inspection, with site visit assessments was carried out from September 13 to 16, 2016, and head office assessments from September 12 to 19. For the first time, Kingdom’s regional offices in Scotland and Northern Ireland were inspected by the auditor also. No improvements were needed in order to meet the standard.
Kingdom’s CEO Terry Barton BA (Hons), pictured, said: “The work to secure such a score is the result of 12 months hard work by a fantastic Kingdom team. It is also a worthy reward because of the effort our leadership team put in pre audit and during the week of audit. Securing an ACS score that high does not come easy but continues to demonstrate, and more importantly evidence, what a great business Kingdom is and the 6,500 people within it. The score received makes me personally very proud of the business we have ALL built and the great successes we have had since inception in 1993.”
