SIA Contact Number

What is the new SIA contact number?

As of 1st of November 2016 the SIA can be contacted on: 0300 123 9298 - Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm




The Security Industry Authority closed its call center early 2016 leaving potentially 360 000 registered licence holders in the UK without a chance to get a quick update on their application.

Few facts about the Security Industry Authority

  • Is the organisation responsible for regulating the private security industry
  • 360K+ UK licenced individuals   
  • £220 the price of the licence application or licence renewal 

Every year thousands of security professionals as well as new applicants pay an excessive application fee to the SIA to "grant" them the so called door supervisor badge. Seemingly a straightforward application process can go wrong on many levels leaving the individual unaware of what went wrong for a painfully long time.

If only 10 000 sign the below petition, the Government will look into this absurd

Two weeks waiting for an email

SIA claims it will process your email query within 10 working days. This means they will only start looking into your problem after 2 weeks of your email query. If you did not start the process at least 2 months before your SIA badge expires you will be likely left in the dark and unlicensed for a while.

Deprived from work for months

Numerous security professionals are finding it near impossible to sort out minor application errors due to the fact the people who have the final word on their right to work as security are nowhere to be found.
