Security and Accreditations

Pearl Scan Legal offers the finest in security for each and every one of our clients.


We have invested in the most up to date security and fire detection systems, giving the document storage area elevated fire detection. Our main operating and scanning building in Manchester is also controlled with Red Care Security and has 24 hour internal and external CCTV. This can be seen from anywhere thanks to our advanced in place systems and any kind of movement will set the hugely powerful alarm off.

Red Care's advanced systems also mean that a security company will be on the premises within 15 minutes. In addition to this, our doors are locked and bolted, as well as secured by key code pads on each door 3 times before you reach the internal area of the building from the outside.

We are more than happy for you to come and visit to see for yourself how safe your documents will be. After all, we understand that the documents you give us to work with are precious and can contain data that is in need of secure storage.

If you're still not convinced, for some projects we even offer onsite scanning services in which we will complete all work within your own property so the documents need never be moved from their original location.

We always strive to offer the best service we can while offering excellent customer service and superior communication throughout our processes. Here are some of our accreditations.

ISO 9001 Quality Management

This international standard gives the requirements for what the organisation must do to manage processes affecting quality of its products and services. It does this through the creation of a Quality Management System 'Quality Management' refers to all aspects of delivery of the service required by a client, as well as compliance to applicable regulations.

The standard asks what the organisations does to enhance client satisfaction and to continually improve performance, which is checked on an ongoing basis through Surveillance Audits. Having been refined over a number of years by a consensus of experts across various industries and sectors, ISO 9001 is an international, up-to-date model for organisations to follow. By systemising the way of doing things, ISO 9001 makes clear who is responsible for doing what, when, how, why and where.

ISO 27001 Information Security

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system within the context of the organization. It also includes requirements for the assessment and treatment of information security risks tailored to the needs of the organization.

ISO 14001 Environmental Management

The ISO 14000 family addresses various aspects of environmental management. It provides practical tools for companies and organizations looking to identify and control their environmental impact and constantly improve their environmental performance. ISO 14001:2004 and ISO 14004:2004 focus on environmental management systems. The other standards in the family focus on specific environmental aspects such as life cycle analysis, communication and auditing.
