Risk Management Company Licensing

 

In addition to negotiating contracts for security with customers, the APPF is working to license Risk Management Companies (RMCs). RMCs will not provide security services in the same manner as PSCs, but they will provide security advice and expertise to companies doing business in Afghanistan. These personnel are experts in security, risk assessment and management of security operations. In addition to advising their clients, they will provide on-site training, advising and mentoring to the APPF guards.
