The Security in Complex Environments Group (SCEG) is a Special Interest Group of ADS, for security and risk companies committed to the development and implementation of international standards for the private security and crisis management sector.
SCEG companies are well regulated and compliant: embracing international security standards and protecting human rights is at the core of their business. SCEG are, and continue to be, a significant instigator and contributor to the activities of the International Code of Conduct Association, which has evolved from the declaration of the Montreux Document of 2008, now ratified by over 50 countries. Affiliate Members of SCEG include the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Department for Transport, both of whom are members of the Executive Committee.
SCEG provides a voice and a catalyst for change for those companies concerned about the need to raise global standards for the private security and crisis management sector. It also seeks to broaden the involvement of its membership in work overseas and at home. It has strong links to UK government departments involved in trade and commerce.
The SCEG is governed by an Executive Committee representing the broad spectrum of interests within the membership. The Group welcomes membership applications from security and crisis management companies who are compliant, recognise the importance of standards, and participate in raising global standards.
