Door Supervisor Scheme

All door supervisors who work in a licensed venue need to be registered with the The Security Industry Authority (SIA) in order to work. This involves completing an application form, undergoing a police check and completing a training course.


Door Supervisor licences have changed

During 2004-05 door supervisor licences and badges issued by local authorities and police were phased out.

The need now is for only one licence to work anywhere in England and Wales.
It will be against the law to work as a door supervisor without an SIA licence.

The SIA will only grant licences to people who have the right skills and training to do the job, and who can pass a criminal background check.

SIA licences are required for the Brighton & Hove area 

Please visit the SIA website for more information
