International Code of Conduct

Reposted from 11 November 2010 - The IAMSP is proud to be amongst the first Industry Associations lending their support and signatures to the International Code of Conduct for Private Security Service Providers. Allan McDougall represented ISSG Holdings, Evolutionary Security, APPDSand IAMSP at the signing ceremony held in Geneva, Switzerland on 09 November 2010.

This Code of Conduct, often referred to as the ICoC, is the first major step in a vital effort to ensure that companies operating in Formal Dresses NZ: Wedding Dresses,Bridesmaid Dresses,Ball Prom Dresses,Cocktail Gownscomplex environments (where the rule of law has been significantly eroded) conduct their operations in a way that is respectful of the human rights that have been enshrined in such documents as the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

This ICoC builds upon the foundations that were laid with the Montreux Document and so it may be seen as an appropriate evolutionary step rather than a revolutionary step. This is important because we need to understand that this is not a sudden and short term effort. It is something that is going to be built, implemented and maintained over time.

To date, we have been involved as an original signatory. We are currently involved in the process that will become the Maritime Security appendix and also involved in the ASIS International efforts associated with the development of the Technical standards. In short, the Association is proud to be able to say that it is at the leading edge of the development of this important effort.

For those interested in participating in the development of this Code, a discussion forum is being set up in this space within the controlled members area where specific elements can be discussed, collated and then presented to the drafting authorities.

IAMSP continues to be involved in this significant effort, including the upcoming efforts to draft the maritime security Appendix to this work as one of a number of industry stakeholders.
