"We’ve been reviewing the advice and guidance we make available to customers to identify what more we can do to make the information more visual and easily understood. The new videos were developed as part of a wider review by our licensing team, keeping the customer experience at the forefront throughout. We will continue to monitor our contact strategy and continuously improve the advice and guidance we publish to help make the application process as straightforward as possible for new and returning customers."

Three new playlists are available on the SIA’s official YouTube channel, combining existing SIA guidance with the newly released videos:
Playlist 1 – Applying for an SIA licence
Playlist 2 – Using a personal SIA online account
Playlist 3 – Using our business services
