This template provides a framework covering all of the essential legal

services to be provided should be detailed in full in the schedule at the

A central provision in this agreement includes a detailed set of
formalities governing the provision of the services. These formalities
include the all-important requirement that security guards be licenced by

policies as they should be applicable only to the client’s employees.

sub-contractors. Insurance taken out by sub-contractors should provide the
same level of cover as the insurance taken out by the main contractor.
Great care should be taken when selecting the appropriate agreement and you
