We are delighted to announce that we have landed a spot in the top three percent of UK security firms, following a successful audit from the Security Industry Authority (SIA).
The Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS), commissioned by the SIA, aims to protect the public and employees within the security industry through a framework that sets, improves, and monitors operating standards. Firms are marked against seven criteria and must consistently demonstrate excellent service delivery and sound business management.
We demonstrated excelled levels of compliance in all areas and scored an impressive 131 points out of 145, placing us in the UK’s top three percent security firms, a two percent increase on our 2021 audit result.
The audit included interviews with key senior team members, front line security teams and customers to understand the processes and procedures in place and to gather any feedback.
Elliot Roddy, Group Operations Director at CDX Security Group, said of our recent success: “We’ve continued to work really hard to ensure our working practices are second to none, and to gain a 2% advantage on our 2021 audit is fantastic news for CDX and our customers.”
“We pride ourselves on the standards of our team and our company values, and achieving these scores is testament to the team’s dedication to CDX. With the launch of CDX Aviation, fantastic audit results and a win at the Warrington Business Awards all achieved in 2022, we’re looking forward to what 2023 has in store.”
Areas of good practice highlighted in the audit included the internal audit procedure put in place to score ourselves against the ACS standards where any scores below the highest mark are identified and improvements outlined. Our community initiatives for promoting careers in the security industry via local schools were also highlighted by the audit.
