It is a criminal offence to undertake the licensable activities of a door supervisor without an SIA licence.

A Security licence is required when manned guarding activity that does not fall under the descriptions of door supervision, close protection, cash and valuables in transit, or public space surveillance (CCTV) is undertaken.
An SIA licence is required if you undertake the licensable activities of a vehicle immobiliser in Northern Ireland. If you purchased a vehicle immobilising licence for use in the UK prior to October 2012 you may also still be able to claim tax relief on this cost.
