Complaint against Security Industry Authority

I've been in the security services for 35 years and have worked not only all the sectors apart from Cash in transit, but have run my own security company and worked for mod and home office. Since the SIA have come into effect I have been spun over twice my they're lack of professionalism. The first time I applied for my Door License I was working in security on nearly two thousand a month wages and I had to wait 11 months for my license due to the SIA under estimating the amount of security companies trying to get there security personnel licensed. This slowness from the SIA eventually cost me my job as the security company couldn't pay me for sitting at home waiting for a license to arrive. In the end I was having to claim benefits to survive. Thanks SIA. The second time is now. I applied for the renewal of my license back in February this year and it's still stuck on criminality checks and we are now in June. This is absolutely ridiculous. They took the payment quick enough but receiving the license is another story. I personally beleive it's not the applicants that need to be checked through they're processing system but there own staff and the training they give there staff should be looked into.
