In 2022, the Government announced details for the Martyn’s Law (Protect Duty) Bill. This was in tribute to Martyn Hett, one of 22 people killed in the Manchester Arena terrorist attack in 2017.
Martyn’s Law, or the Terrorism (Protection of Premises Bill) is pending and when it receives Royal assent in 2024, it is intended to keep people safe by requiring owners and managers of public venues to meet stringent standards for managing terror attack risks. Venues, including some events, must consider the threats and then implement appropriate, proportionate measures to mitigate them.
With Martyn’s Law set to be introduced in 2024, it’s crucial for venue managers and owners to start planning and discussing compliance now. CaPS Secure is here to help you prepare and stay compliant when Martyn’s Law comes into force. Don’t wait – get in touch now for a discussion and start future-proofing today!
The government have indicated that publicly accessible locations with a capacity of more than one hundred people will need to undertake simple yet effective activities to improve protective security and preparedness.
If your business is one of the sectors listed below, you are likely to have to comply with Martyn’s Law.
– entertainment and leisure
– retail, food and drink
– museums and galleries
– sports grounds
– public areas of local and central government buildings (e.g. town halls)
– visitor attractions
– temporary events, such as concerts
– places of worship
– hospitals and schools
CaPS Secure can assist you in assessing your eligibility, finding your tier and taking the necessary actions to comply in a proportionate way.
Requirements will vary based on venue capacity:
Venues with a capacity ranging from 100 to 799 individuals must adhere to the ‘Standard Tier‘ guidelines. These venues are mandated to complete an Emergency Action Plan template provided by the Home Office and implement measures that are appropriate and proportionate to the assessment’s findings.
For venues accommodating over 800 individuals, the ‘Enhanced Tier‘ regulations come into effect. Such venues will be obligated to conduct comprehensive risk assessments, establish thorough security protocols, and provide extensive staff training. The specific and proportionate responses required will be stipulated in the governing legislation.
