We do not routinely issue guidance on this subject. There is, however, an extant piece of advice (Home Office Circular 60/1995) on the subject of local authority registration of door supervisors.

The Private Security Industry Act 2001 sets out the Government's current framework for the regulation of the private security industry in England and Wales. Consultations with local authorities will be essential with regard to those aspects of the Act relating to the licensing of door supervisors.
