UNI 10891 - PRIVATE SECURITY ORGANISATIONS

In a market that is highly competitive across all production sectors, having certified surveillance equipment is still seen as a mark of distinction, especially where personal security is perceived to be at risk.That is why private security service certification is becoming essential for businesses that operate in the security sector.

In addition to being a strategic transparency tool for communicating the quality of the service, with inspections carried out by an independent third-party Body, it also reinforces company credibility and above all guarantees that its operational activities reflect the certification standards.


Private security service certification under the UNI 10891 standard guarantees an organisation has achieved a certain level of service quality in various types of private security and that the levels are being maintained.

anti-shoplifting surveillance;

remote surveillance;

emergency call security;

remote controlled surveillance;

intervention surveillance;

safekeeping of valuables;

Observance of operational procedures, technical equipment and methods of managing various types of private security service are important factors for consideration when assessing companies, along with regulations for safety in the workplace, "information management", and above all procedures relating to human resource management.

The ANCCP Certification Agency S.r.l., as an Accredia-accredited, independent, third-party, certifying body, carries out activities in this field and certifies companies in accordance with UNI 10891 "Private security organisation services - requirements".

This certification gives any organisation operating in the private security sector the means to distinguish themselves, by highlighting the verifiable quality of their services, including:

providing reassurance to customers on their compliance with regulatory requirements;

giving credibility to their operations with the inspections that are carried out by an independent third-party agency;

providing a tool for communicating the transparency of their service quality;

having a results-oriented approach.
