The leading Security Companies within the UK

Welcome to The ACS Pacesetters

The Approved Contract Scheme Pacesetters membership is made up of Contract Security Guarding Companies who are in the top 15% benchmarking and achievement levels set by the Security Industry Authority Approved Contractor Scheme.

To achieve SIA ACS accreditation companies must reach a score of zero and currently the maximum score is +174 points. All members of ACS Pacesetters will have gained a minimum score of +136 during their recent annual inspection by one of the SIA appointed UKAS inspection bodies.

There are currently in excess of 830 Contract Security Guarding Companies who have achieved ACS accreditation therefore, it is very difficult for the buyers of security services to differentiate between them. The ACS Pacesetters places emphasis on the importance of the annual score, making the tender process for end-users very much simpler.

In restricting membership of the ACS Pacesetter to the top 15% of SIA approved security companies, approximately 125 companies are eligible to join. These companies, both national and regional, have proved they are market leaders in the security guarding industry and are therefore capable of providing an excellent standard of service to their clients and a high degree of care for their employees. As a client, it makes sense to include companies in the top 15% of the ACS scoring system when compiling your tender list.
