Schemes Overview

SSAIB offers a wide range of product certification schemes within the Electronic security; Monitoring; Guarding services and Fire sectors.

The SSAIB require the systems or services provided by registered organisations to comply with relevant British, European standards, International or SSAIB Codes of Practice security standards applicable to the services provided. Many SSAIB schemes are accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS). Accreditation by UKAS demonstrates that SSAIB operates its certification activities in accordance with relevant accreditation standards.

In addition to our own schemes, SSAIB is also an approved assessing body for the Security Industry Authority (SIA) Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS).

Ireland Schemes  

All Schemes require a competent management system to be in place, but they do not need providers to have ISO 9001 management systems certification. However, an effective management system, which may be compliant with ISO 9001 requirements, will provide a structured approach and help clarify and achieve business aims and objectives. SSAIB offers ISO 9001 in all of the above areas to complement its product certification schemes.
