Starting a Security Company in South Africa can be extremely profitable. With the high crime statistics in South Africa, residents and businesses have a significant need for products and services that offer them security.

However, getting your paperwork right isn’t simple and it isn’t cheap.

The private security industry has an added layer of paperwork, simply because it’s so imperative to offer a level of services and products that consumers can trust. Security is a serious business; it relates to the safety of both service providers and security service / product consumers.

Whether you’re selling security equipment or whether you offer security-related services like armed response, you need to have the right registration documentation in order to run your business legally and successfully.

With a normal business you can usually start trading straight away, but when you want a security company, there’s a lot of compliance documentation you need to have to legally operate your business in South Africa.

PSIRA-Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority
 

PSIRA is short for the Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority.

PSIRA is the official organization responsible for setting the standards for any security business in South Africa – whether you want to offer security services or security products. This is determined by South African legislation: the Private Security Industry Regulation Act.

If you want to operate any business within the private security industry, you have to register your business with PSIRA. You also have to get the appropriate security grading (there are various) for your staff, any members, directors, partners, trustees or managers.

This is compulsory. Why? PSIRA Registration ensures there’s a baseline of standards for service and product providers within the security industry.

It ensures there’s a level of safety for you, your partners and your employees – and importantly, for your clients. PSIRA’s compulsory paperwork stops fly-by-night security companies from trading or offering sub-par, unsafe or unethical products or services that may pose potential safety risks.

Security in South Africa isn’t risk-free, and consumers, employers and employees need to have basic standard they can rely on.
