Door Supervisors


A door supervisor licence is required if manned guarding activities are undertaken in relation to licensed premises except where the activity only involves the use of CCTV equipment or falls within the definition of cash and valuables in transit or close protection.


There are two types of SIA licence:


A front line licence is required if undertaking licensable activity, other than key holding activities (this also covers undertaking non-front line activity). A front line licence is in the form of a credit card-sized plastic card that must be worn, subject to the licence conditions.


A non-front line licence is required for those who manage, supervise and/or employ individuals who engage in licensable activity, as long as front line activity is not carried out - this includes directors or partners. A non-front line licence is issued in the form of a letter that also covers key holding activities.


Further information is available from the Security Industry Authority (SIA) website.
