Human Analytics is pleased to offer the updated second edition of a briefing paper, Standards for Private Security Services. This paper examines four initiatives particularly relevant to the responsible provision of private security services: the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights, 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 ISO 18788: 2015 Management System for Private Security Operations – Requirements with Guidance for Use. A convenient table provides a comparison of all four 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.
