The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) is recognised as the leading certification body for fire and security protection industries in the UK.
The NSI badge - Recognised, Reassurance & Trust
For over 40 years NSI has provided certification services and is widely recognised by consumers, specifiers, police and insurers as the standard which can be trusted. NSI is one of the UK's leading specialist certification bodies conducting audits in all sizes of business across the security industry.
NSI varies from other certification bodies in that not only check management processes and policies but also go through to inspect the actual product delivery. This expanded process means they are not simply verifying a paper written process but actually verifying it is the consistent approach and standard by operatives through the final service delivery. This means the customer can be sure that they are engaging the services of a capable and competent company.
The NSI works consistently with UK Government bodies, the SIA (Security Industry Authority) and other key agencies. These relationships, along with the ongoing commitment to consistently adapt and develop services in line with technological advances and relevant legislation mean constantly changing customer needs and expectations can we met consistently.
NSI Approved companies must also agree to be audited once every 6 months by fully trained NSI auditors, including random visits to end user sites. Only companies determined to be the best in their class subject themselves to this stringent process.
It is a strictly enforced requirement for National Security Inspectorate (NSI) approved companies to security screen their employees fully, provide quality staff training and supervision meeting recognised industry levels. NSI companies must hold insurance meeting the full need of business to protect their customers and employees. The insurance must also include a detailed description of services types delivered to be compliant.
