SIA Licence Appeals

The Security Industry is heavily regulated by the SIA and those who work in the industry are subject to its rules and regulations. Working without an appropriate licence is a serious offence which can lead to imprisonment.

If you work as a Door Supervisor or as a Guard in the Security Industry, maintaining your licence and thus your job is very important and we can help if your licence application is refused or your existing licence revoked.

The SIA may revoke a licence in a number of circumstances including conviction for certain offences or being cautioned for certain offences, but they will also act if they receive “non conviction” information which leads them to believe a licence should be withdrawn. The SIA also has power to suspend a licence. Suspension has immediate effect but like revocation is capable of review and appeal.

Our lawyers are experienced in all aspects of Criminal law and can bring that experience to your aid in preserving your licence.

Often we can achieve a positive review of the decision by making representations on your behalf, but you also have the option of appeal to the Magistrates Court and beyond. 

Strict time limits apply to both response and appeal and it is vital that you contact us urgently if you have any notice that your licence may be at risk.
