SSAIB, the UK’s leading Certification Body for organisations providing a variety of electronic security, manned guarding services, fire protection, intruder and other alarm systems, will be exhibiting again this year at IFSEC, on stand D35 in Hall 4.
As a specialist Certification Body, providing a wide scope of accreditation, the SSAIB offers a range of important benefits to service suppliers and end-user customers alike. Now operating from brand new offices near Newcastle, the organisation will be taking the valuable opportunity of its IFSEC presence this year to explain, face-to-face, the advantages of its certification schemes.
“The SSAIB certificates the largest number of security service providers in the UK,” declares Chief Executive Geoff Tate. “We also provide access to technical experts who help service providers interpret standards and technical requirements, while for purchasers, specifiers and end-users, our remit as a Certification Body is to ensure your interests are protected and that you have access to a pool of competent service providers you can rely on.
“This is achieved through a strict enforcement of quality and performance standards carried out by our skilled assessors,” he adds. “Insurers are increasingly requiring evidence that all reasonable steps have been taken to mitigate risk and an SSAIB certificated company will meet or exceed your insurer’s requirements.”
In the run-up to this summer’s London Olympics, the SSAIB offers a range of important benefits to counter-terrorism service suppliers and end-user customers alike. For instance, these benefits enable organisations including guarding service providers to participate in the ‘wider police family’ by demonstrating that they operate a professional business, compliant with relevant technical and operational standards.
