BS7858 Security Vetting

BS7858 is the UK standard for vetting of people employed in the security sector. It is set by the British Standards Institution. It was recently updated in 2019.

In the UK over the past 10 years, there has been much movement in the area of background checks. BS7858 screening is being introduced to ensure that standards are kept. This helps ensure those employees working in sensitive areas or with vulnerable people are properly vetted. Regency is regularly audited to ensure we fully comply and work to this British Standard.


ISO 9001 is the International Standard for Quality Management. It is part of the ISO 9000 family of Quality Management Standards and is used by over 1 million businesses today. It delivers a system of continual improvement that is driven by your customers’ needs. This leads to cost savings, improved efficiencies and greater consistency of service deliverables.

ISO 9001:2015 is the most recent version of the 9001 standard available today. It is periodically reviewed by the ISO to meet changing stakeholder expectations and technology developments.
