        Does My Building Site Security Need To Be Accredited?

        Featured Image

        If you’re shopping for building site security, you’ve probably come across terms such as “SSAIB”, “NSI”, “certified” or “accredited” during your search. But what do these terms mean?

        What does it mean to be SSAIB certified, for example, and is it mandatory? Are there other awarding bodies that you can look out for? In this blog you’ll learn what common certifications in the security industry actually mean, and whether or not they are obligatory, so that you can make an informed decision on the best security company for your site.

        The SSAIB (Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board) is the leading certification body for companies who provide security systems, alarm systems, and monitoring services. It is widely recognised by insurers, and means that your security provider has been assessed for best practices by an independent body.

        The SSAIB is regulated by The Security Industry Authority (SIA), which reports directly to the Home Secretary and oversees the private security industry with respect to the Private Security Industry Act 2001. It is important that you select a security provider who is either SSAIB or NSI certified – both SIA certification bodies – as it is a criminal offence to perform licenced security activities without an SIA licence.

        SIA licencing for security providers is not awarded flippantly; providers must demonstrate that they are compliant with the Private Security Industry Act 2001 and that all staff training, management and insurance is in keeping with SIA guidelines. SSAIB and NSI licencing are indications that the security company you are paying are working within legal remits.

        There are other accreditations – aside from SSAIB and NSI – that security providers might be awarded. For example, here at RaiderVision, our control room is accredited to BS 50518 standard. BS50518 (BS EN 50518:2013) is a British Standards Institution (BSI) accreditation provisioned specifically for alarm receiving centres (ARCs).

        The BSI is the UK’s national standards body, which provides technical standards for a wide range of products and services. Unlike SIA certifications, British Standards are not legislation. Security providers are under no obligation to adhere to these standards, and, as such, BSI accreditations are a great reflection of security companies that go the extra mile to exceed expectations and provide the highest level of service possible.

        In summary, certification from an SIA awarding body is imperative. That means that the security provider you select must be either SSAIB or NSI certified. If they are not, your insurance could be rendered invalid. Furthermore, awards such as BSI accreditations are optional, and are therefore indicative of high-quality site security providers.
