    The Court has created two types of Committee to assist with the day-to-day management of the Company; these are The Chartered Security Professionals Registration Authority, and Standing Committees.

    The Chartered Security Professionals Registration Authority

    As part of the Royal Charter the Company took on the obligation to create and run a Register of Chartered Security Professionals. Responsibility for this is delegated to a Committee of the Court.

    The Court created the Chartered Security Professionals Registration Authority to implement and manage the Register of Chartered Security Professionals. The Registration Authority is the agent for the Company – acting under the Company’s delegated authority and operating under Terms of Reference approved by the Court as stated in the Ordinances.

    Schedule 2 of the Royal Charter stipulates that the Registration Authority must have a Chair and a Deputy Chair whom are both completely independent of the Court.
