As part of ongoing work by the Sports Grounds Safety Authority to provide relevant help and
advice to enable the safety of all those who attend live sport, we have prepared this policy
This policy guidance is aimed primarily at certifying authorities with SGSA licensed grounds
in their areas, focused specifically on the existing exemption in the Private Security Industry
Act (PSIA) 2001 for those in-house staff at sports grounds undertaking Security Industry
Authority (SIA) licensable activities.
