National Security Inspectorate

National Security Inspectorate (NSI) is the most respected and trusted independent UKAS accredited certification body for the security and fire safety sector. Formed in 2001 following the merger of NACOSS (National Approval Council for Security Systems) and ISI (Inspectorate of the Security Industry), the organisation approves more than 1,900 companies UK wide.

Renowned for their thoroughness, NSI auditors are industry experts. Every year, they conduct more than 3,500 inspections of service providers in the electronic security, guarding and fire services sectors.

NSI approval is considered the seal of excellence for security systems providers. By choosing an NSI NACOSS Gold approved company, consumers and business owners can be assured of their technical expertise, professionalism and integrity, all of which are recognised by the insurance industry and the police.

What security services do NSI NACOSS Gold approved companies provide?

NSI NACOSS Gold approved companies provide one or more of the following services:

  • Intruder Alarms (PD 6662, BS 8243, BS 8473, BS 9263)
  • CCTV Systems (NCP 104, BS 8418)
  • Access Control Systems (NCP 109)
  • Scaffolding Alarm Systems (NCP 115)

If you are looking to install any of the above systems, you are well advised to engage an NSI NACOSS Gold approved company. As industry specialists, they are audited on a regular basis in order to verify compliance with International and British Standards and NSI Codes of Practice.

Why use an NSI NACOSS Gold approved security company?

Approved companies operate an ISO 9001 Quality Management System, driving ongoing improvement in performance, efficiency and customer service. This is all in line with the NSI unique Quality Schedule.

NSI NACOSS Gold approved companies operate to a higher level than those approved under some of the other certification schemes. They combine their own Quality Management System with the NSI Quality Schedule, offering an additional layer of reassurance for customers.

NSI companies are certified to either Silver or Gold. Under the Silver accreditation, companies are thoroughly audited to relevant industry standards, as well as having to demonstrate compliance with industry best practice. Under the Gold standard, approved installers must undergo even further scrutiny during their bi-annual inspections with the NSI auditors.

NSI will only approve those companies that are able to demonstrate technical and managerial competence in staff training and development.

Choosing an NSI NACOSS Gold approved company offers peace of mind that they:

  • Are technically competent, working to relevant International and British Standards and NSI Codes of Practice
  • Have reputable directors and leaders with relevant business experience, and effective employee security screening to BS 7858
  • Undergo independent, regular inspections twice yearly by NSI’s highly trained team of industry specialist auditors to verify ongoing compliance

  • Install reliable, modern equipment that meets all the latest industry standards
