The ACS (Approved Contractor Scheme) standard is relevant to any organization that offers licensable security services, as defined in the Private Security Act 2001. It is suitable for organizations of all sizes and sectors within the industry since it allows them to develop their own operational approaches while adhering to the guidelines outlined in the standard. This flexibility enables organizations to adapt the ACS standard to their specific needs and working methods while ensuring compliance with industry regulations. Whether you operate in a large or small sector within the security industry, the ACS standard provides a framework for enhancing your operations and maintaining industry best practices.

The standard does not specifically require the development of a documented quality management system. However, an organisation will have to demonstrate to an assessor how its chosen methods are effective in delivering high levels of customer satisfaction and a sustainable business. Many organisations will achieve this through documented procedures
and records.
