ASIS Completes Work on PSC Series of ANSI Standards

15 April 2013

​ASIS is pleased to announce the release of two new ANSI standards: Maturity Model for the Phased Implementation of a Quality Assurance Management System for Private Security Service Providers (PSC.3) and Quality Assurance and Security Management for Private Security Companies Operating at Sea—Guidance (PSC.4), completing the PSC—Private Security Company or Private Security Service Providers (collectively referred to as "PSCs")—series of ANSI standards. This series will help private security service providers ensure quality of service, manage risks, and protect human rights in areas of the world where rule of law has been undermined due to acts of war or natural disaster, as well as in the maritime environment.

The PSC series includes:

  • ANSI/ASIS PSC.1-2012: Management System for Quality of Private Security Company Operations - Requirements with Guidance
  • ANSI/ASIS PSC.2-2012: Conformity Assessment and Auditing Management Systems for Quality of Private Security Company Operations
  • ANSI/ASIS PSC.3-2013: Maturity Model – Phased Implementation of a Quality Assurance Management System for Private Security Service Providers
  • ANSI/ASIS PSC.4-2013: Quality Assurance and Security Management for Maritime Private Security Companies – Guidance

Led by ASIS, more than 200 experts from 24 countries helped develop this series. They are the world's first standards designed to manage risks related to security services, while protecting the rights of the individuals impacted by these services.
