Who Should Apply

Membership is not restrictive and is open to any establishment working in the security industry that provides contract guarding and/or the operational deployment of security dogs.


Associate Companies are not inspected but they have made a written commitment to abide by all relevant Codes of Practice together with the recommendations and guidance contained in the current BS 8517-1 for General Purpose Dogs and BS 8517-2 for Detection Dogs.  Associate Companies who feel that the above does not differentiate enough between those that just meet the standard and those that exceed the standard should consider the Inspected Company route.
