About us

NBCPSS was established and registered in terms of the provisions of the Labour Relations Act of South Africa. The primary aim and purpose of the NBCPSS is to regulate, maintain, and enforce the standard terms and conditions as set out in the Main Collective Agreement (MCA). The Council’s mandate is set out in Section 28 of South Africa’s Labour Relations Act (LRA) of 1995, with key activities and guidance outlined in Section 33A thereof. The mandate is achieved through the adoption of a strategy which establishes and provides direction of the Council by assessing both the current challenges faced and where the organisation would like to be. Strategic plans include development and implementation of key policies for effective running of the Council as well as appointments of key human resources to enable strategy execution.

Our vision is to provide complete integrated solutions to all employers and employees in the private security sector by protecting them through regulation and standardisation of the terms and conditions of employment and enforcement thereof.
