The contracts that the SIA has with external assessment bodies are due to come to an end in March 2017. We have recently completed a retender process for both the Standard route and Passport scheme routes.
The following assessing bodies have been awarded contracts to deliver Standard route assessment services on behalf of the SIA.
Subject to the contracts being signed the contract will commence on the 1st April 2017.
What is Passport route to ACS?
Passport route requires a company to apply to one of the assessing bodies that operates an accredited passport scheme in the first instance. The Assessing Body will conduct a Passport assessment and if successful will issue a company with a Passport certificate. To gain ACS approval the company then applies to us. We will conduct fit and proper checks against the company and if these checks are satisfied the SIA will grant ACS approval.
The following assessing bodies have been awarded contracts to deliver Passport route assessment services which we will recognise.
