Security Industry Licensing Appeals

If you have been refused a license, or had your Security Industry Authority (SIA) license revoked, I can help.

I am a specialist in dealing with this security licensing cases and will give you expert advice and representation.

Anyone working as a door supervisor or guard in the security industry has to be licensed by the SIA. The purpose of the licensing is to ensure that people working in these jobs are properly trained and qualified to do their job.

The SIA has the power to revoke a license if it believes that someone is not a ‘fit and proper’ person to hold a license.

When can the SIA revoke my licence?

Common circumstances where licenses are revoked include:

  • Receiving a caution for a criminal offence
  • Being convicted of a criminal offence
  • ‘Other’ behaviour which causes the SIA concern

If your license is revoked, it is possible to appeal against the decision. There are strict timelines and procedures which have to be followed so it is best to seek professional representation as soon as possible.

I will examine the circumstances of your case and put together the best possible appeal to try and retain your SIA license. I can make representations on your behalf, including providing additional evidence such as witness statements, medical evidence or letters of reference. I can make written representations as well as acting for you on a full hearing if it reaches that stage.

Please contact me as soon as possible if you face a licensing issue.
