UK standards for maritime private security companies to be set by year's end

The Inaugural Conference of the Security in Complex Environments Group (SCEG) announced that standards designed to ensure high levels of quality and professionalism of all Private Security Companies operating in a maritime environment would be in place before the end of 2012.

SCEG is a special interest group within ADS, a UK government appointed body for the regulation and accreditation of private security companies. ADS believes that the high levels of risk of piracy in the seas off Somalia makes the development of maritime standards and independent accreditation a high priority, to reduce risks to private security companies and their employees, to ship owners and seamen, and to ship and cargo insurers and brokers.
