The owners and operators of businesses and public spaces such as concert halls, shopping centres and parks will be legally bound to protect such venues from terrorism under a new statutory duty proposed by the government. Already adopted by the Manchester Authorities, it likely to become law across the UK. 

AKD are a step ahead with a full suite of online and attendance courses to ensure your employees and security personnel are fully trained and prepared to meet the 5 Martyns Law requirements:

  1. A requirement that spaces and places to which the public have access engage with freely available counter-terrorism advice and training.

  2. A requirement for those places to conduct vulnerability assessments of their operating places and spaces.

  3. A requirement for those places to mitigate the risks created by the vulnerabilities.

  4. A requirement for those places to have a counter-terrorism plan.

  5. A requirement for local authorities to plan for the threat of terrorism.


AKD will support your needs with the provision of VULNERABILITY AND THREAT ASSESSMENTS as part of the service.
