THE POSITION SO FAR:
The licensing system is being implemented by security industry authority (SIA).
Everything so far is running fairly smoothly, within the entire security industry in England and Wales.
During 2005 and 2006 they consulted extensively with individals and representatives working within private investigation on the possible approches for licensing.
The options for licensing were presented by the Home Office in the patial regulated impact assessment in August 2007.
Individuals and Organisations with an interest in this sector had an oppotunity to respond with their comments.
The responses to the consultation were published by the Home Office in may 2008.
Following the Home Office's recommendation to introduce competency - based licensing, an interim version of the impact assessment comfirming the intetion to develop the regulation was published in september 2008.
At present it is too early to say exactly how the new licensing system for private investigators will operate.However, the SIA say that operators will need an SIA licence "if they are engaged in surveillance, inquiries or investigations for the purpose of obtaining information about a person or person(s) activities or whereabouts or the circumstances by which property has been lost or damaged.
