IISSM has played a critical role behind the enactment of the Private Security (Regulation) Act 2005 since 1994. Ministry of Home Affairs has now directed us vide his letter No.24021/17/05-PM-I Dated October 27, 2006:
- “As far as conducting of training of private security agencies or its employees is concerned, this would have to be organised in the private sector, in accordance with norms prescribed for the purpose. In this regard, the Institute could assist in shortlisting the right institutes for training of private security personnel. However, certification / accreditation would have to be accorded only by Government agency, in view of the national security concerns.”
- The task so assigned by the Ministry has since been examined in depth and in consultation with experts and in accordance with nationally and internationally accepted guidelines, a suitable “Quality Standard”, titled “IISSM Standard”, for recommending / shortlisting of security training institutes in the private sector of India has been sent up to the Ministry, where it is now under consideration.
