Licensing of Private Investigators in the UK
There is currently no licensing requirement for a UK private investigator or private detective. However, new laws are in various stages of progress across the United Kingdom to deal with the licensing of the investigation industry and until they come into effect one should be very careful to check the authenticity of the private investigators they intend instructing.
Remember to view the UK & International Association acronym guide to see which organisations a private investigation agency is affiliated to both in the UK and internationally.
All UKPIN members have been vetted to confirm that they are bona fide trading private investigators and private detectives.

Open Source intelligence (OSINT)
Open-source intelligence (OSINT) or Open Source Research is information and data compiled and collected from overt sources.
These sources are within the public domain and are free to access in most cases.
This information gathering procedure was physically carried out in the past (at places such as Somerset House) but is now commonly done online, at least initially, to build up a picture of information.
Here is a nifty article on Boolean Searching which can save hours when used correctly to mine data.
