Human Analytics is pleased to offer a new briefing paper, Standards for Private Security Services. The paper examines three initiatives particularly relevant to the responsible provision of private security services: the International Code of Conduct for Private Security Service Providers, ANSI/ASIS PSC.1-2012 Management System for Quality of Private Security Company Operations – Requirements with Guidance, and the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights. A convenient table provides a comparison of all three at a glance, highlighting key human rights related content, assurance frameworks, enforcement and grievance mechanisms, reporting, and governance structures. In addition, background information on the origins of the initiatives, their relationship to each other, implementation efforts, and recent developments are provided.
