Who is the Assessor?
Awarding bodies, Security Companies, Security Consultants, Security Risk Investigators, Security Trainers, and HIM Assessors
These awarding bodies, consultants and assessors are able to call on Security Companies and all other companies or sites for COC19 assessment. It is obvious that an outside assessor has to assess a security company.
The Assessor will also obtain the Trainer Certificate.
Obviously, the Assessor cannot assess their own sites of responsibility. For example, their training certificate can train their own staff but an outside assessor must assess the site. However, if their client would like their own name on the certificate, then the bearer of the assessor certificate could assess their client. Keep in mind, that the client’s nominated person must authorize their affidavit thus providing oversight on their provider.
The Certificate is renewable yearly with changing numbers for good reason. It is vital for the bearer is in a constant state of situational awareness and may need to know added or specific protocols besides issues of concern.
All bodies, awarding bodies, security companies, security assessment consultants and HIM assessors can assess corporate in-house security departments that have their own security teams
A Security Company can be a COC19 Certificate of Compliance assessor. Obviously their own company and their clients should comply with COC19 criteria.
The Security Company can provide their clients the security company’s COC19 certificate to display.
When the Security Company’s clients that would like ”THEIR OWN COC19 certificate” then they could be assessed by their servicing security company. This is fine because the Client’s management provides the affidavit therefore assuring oversight of their service provider. This means that the specific staff within the security company could be trained as security assessors, or the company can form an alliance with the HIM assessor.
