Regulating the Use of Force by Private Security Providers – A Guidance Tool for States

This Guidance Tool is intended to support States in regulating the use of force by private security providers. The standards, requirements, and good practices contained in this Tool should be incorporated in national legislation, regulations, by-laws, as well as criteria for licensing, authorisation and registration. Additionally, States can use this tool to inform their procurement processes when contracting the services of PSPs. This Guidance does not address situations where international humanitarian law applies. Rather, the Tool refers to the private provision of security services in law enforcement contexts.
