MUSC signs groundbreaking code of practice

9 November 2010

The International Code of Conduct for Private Security Service Providers is the result of an inclusive, transparent multi-stakeholder initiative launched in June 2009 by industry associations, corporations and individual business leaders with the assistance of the Government of Switzerland and in consultation with the Governments of the United Kingdom and the United States, as well as other stakeholders and relevant experts.

The final goals of this initiative are to set high standards for the industry worldwide and to establish external independent mechanisms for effective governance and oversight. The Code addresses both of these objectives. Firstly, as an initial human rights statement, the Code forms the basis for measurable standards for the private security industry. Secondly, the Code articulates a clear plan for the development of independent governance and oversight mechanisms.
