What is BS 7858 2006? is a question I get asked a lot,mostly by new security guards who have joined a security firm and have been told that their employment will be dependant on them being vetted in accordance with it.
However,surprisingly I also get asked this question by security companys, this question is often followed by, do we have to do it ? and how much does it cost?
Other popular questions are: I have a back log of people what can be done about them? and how long does it take?
With this blog I aim to explain in simple straight forward terms what vetting actually means, the procedures, the advantages and the limitations.
