Alan Meyrick says: ‘The value of SABRE certification allows users to demonstrate a facility’s security credentials to their own end users, investors, insurers and partners, while also continually improving security standards and performance. Users are required to demonstrate compliance with the core technical components of Loss Prevention Standard (LPS) 2082, providing both a credible and meaningful security certification. A SABRE Registered Assessor understands the process and technical elements of the scheme, with the end objective of helping the user achieve SABRE certification. Furthermore, SABRE Registered Professionals have demonstrated high competency requirements within the specialist deliverables of the scheme, giving users confidence in the certification and the process, but also acting as an indicator of professionalism across the wider security industry.’
