National Security Inspectorate

The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) is an independent, not-for-profit approvals body providing inspection services for the security and fire industries.

For over 30 years, NSI has been protecting the customer by insisting on the highest standards and operating the toughest inspection regime. Companies are inspected regularly by highly qualified, full-time inspectors, to prove their ongoing competence.

NSI’s Customer Care support process reinforces the reliability and integrity of the companies it inspects.

All NSI schemes meet or exceed the appropriate requirements of the Police, Fire Service and Insurers.

The Problem

With the high level of crime it is important to protect your property, whether a domestic residence or business premises.

To do this electronic security systems such as alarms, access control and CCTV, are important components of your protection requirements.

It is equally important to ensure that the company installing your system is competent and reliable and will satisfy your insurance company and the police.

The Solution

The only practical way is to use a NACOSS Recognised Firm.

NACOSS is a division of the National Security Inspectorate (NSI), an independent regulatory body.

NACOSS Recognised Firms comply with relevant British Standards and the industry's own Codes of Practice.

All firms are required to have the international quality management standard ISO9000.

NSI is accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS), which ensures bodies such as NSI discharge their responsibilities correctly.

Insurance Discounts

Many insurance companies will offer householders discount when using a NACOSS Recognised Firm to install their electronic security system. For commercial premises, insurers now regularly insist that systems be installed by a NACOSS Recognised Firm before they will provide cover.

The Police

The police acknowledge that NACOSS Recognised Firms comply with the Association Of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) requirements. Security systems will therefore be able to be connected to Alarm Receiving Centres to summon the police should the need arise. Customer Commitment

NACOSS firms should provide the best possible service. However if you are not satisfied with the service you may use the formal complaint procedure to try and resolve the matter.
