This Standard builds on the Montreux Document and the International Code of Conduct (ICoC) for Private Security Service Providers to provide requirements and guidance for a management system with auditable criteria for Quality of Private Security Company Operations, consistent with respect for human rights, legal obligations and good practices related to operations of private security service provider companies in conditions where governance and the rule of law have been undermined by conflict or disaster. It provides auditable requirements based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act model for third-party certification of private security service providers working for any client.
In 2017, ANSI/ASIS PSC.1-2012 underwent its five-year periodic maintenance and evaluation process. The Technical Committee and Working Group agreed via consensus to reaffirm the standard with only minor, non-substantive changes. Thus, current users and implementers of ANSI/ASIS PSC.1-2012 will not find in this reaffirmed Standard any new, deleted or changed requirements.
