Who should use BS 7984?

The main companies to use a BS7984 Keyholding standard include; Security companies and agencies, building management companies, local authorities and those promoting compliance with any form of Keyholding operation.


All business owners should understand the risks associated with having their own employees as Key Holders. With this in mind, some independent companies will offer mobile patrols and carry out their own duties to comply with BS 7984:2008 Keyholding services.

The BS 7984 standard is designed to offer you (the business owner) peace of mind – If a BS 7984 audited company or individual offers a rapid response in the event of alarm activation or incident, you will surely sleep better at night – Who knows, it may even reduce your insurance costs!
