Advantages of PSIRA Registration:

(1) You will become a registered Security Provider in South Africa

Your Company will be listed at PSIRA as a registered, verified, legitimate Security Company. This will enable you to get jobs for which your unregistered competitors will never be eligible.

(2) Grants, Contracts and Tenders

When applying for finance or any type of security work (such as contracts and tenders), you will need to be registered with PSIRA. Thus, many opportunities will open for your Security Company.


PSIRA Registration Cost: R2990 (facilitation of the registration)


Process of Registering at PSIRA

(1) Consult & Provide Templates

Firstly we will study your business’ position and advise you on the documentation required. We will also setup the letters that PSIRA requires. Note that the fee payable to Company Partners is a facilitation fee for the process. PSIRA will charge you a separate non-refundable application fee of R5700.

(2) Application Submission

Once we have everything PSIRA requires, we will stand in the queues at the PSIRA Office on your behalf. We will then confirm with you once your documents have been registered with PSIRA. Note that this is where our service as facilitator stops. Only the Site Visit then needs to be done by PSIRA Personnel before the PSIRA Registration is completely finished.

(3) Site Visit

PSIRA will then confirm when they want to do a site visit to make sure your Office(s) is up to PSIRA’s standards. Which means the office(s) must be equipped with: A desk; A Chair; Working fax machine; Working Telkom line; Lockable filing cabinet; Personal Computer (Not a laptop, your PC must be immovable).

(4) Certification/ Register with PSIRA

Your Security Company will then become a registered Security Company with PSIRA which will allow you to start trading and tender.
