SSAIB Decide to Make The Standard 2020 Accessible to All During Coronavirus Pandemic

As a gesture of goodwill to our registered firms and the wider security and fire industries during the current COVID-19 pandemic, SSAIB has taken the decision to release a free online version of The Standard magazine for 2020.

This edition is the first of our annual magazine to be accessible digitally, allowing anyone with access to the Internet the opportunity to read about our SSAIB 25 celebrations, the latest developments at the leading UKAS-accredited certification body for the fire and security industries and the current issues facing both of those sectors as we welcome in the new decade.

Although physical copies are being posted out with the latest issues of Fire Safety Matters and Security Matters magazines, this free-to-access SSAIB publication will be housed on magazine publishers Western Business Media Ltd’s website indefinitely – allowing readers to view The Standard wherever and whenever they like.

PR and communications executive Glen Maxwell commented: “An online version of The Standard is something that we have discussed previously, but – for one reason and another – we’ve never taken that step into the digital realm before. With the current uncertainty that a lot of us are all facing during this time, however, we thought it was the right time to roll out the latest issue of The Standard to anyone who wishes to read it.

“Of course, our registered firms will be receiving their own copies as part of the annual arrangement we have with Western Business Media. However, the magazines are usually one of the first things that are picked up by visitors to our stands at the many exhibitions that we do, so we knew that it wasn’t just our registered firms that would be wanting to read the latest issue.

“On behalf of SSAIB, I’d like to thank Mark Sennett and the rest of Western Business Media for their assistance in getting The Standard into the digital realm for the first time, on top of the rest of the hard work they put into producing the latest magazine. I hope everyone enjoys reading this year’s edition and that this can become a standard feature for future issues of The Standard.”
