Background on the topic

This Standard addresses the topic of security practices. It focuses on the conduct of security personnel towards third parties and the potential risk for excessive use of force or other violations of human rights. Security personnel can refer to employees of the reporting organization or employees of third-party organizations that provide security forces. The use of security personnel can have negative impacts on local populations, and on the upholding of human rights and the rule of law. Providing effective training in human rights, therefore, helps to make sure that security personnel understand when to use force in an appropriate way, and how to ensure respect for human rights.
