Reasons to Choose an NSI Accredited Company

Posted on 4th March 2019 by Wilson Alarm Systems Blog



NSI stands for the National Security Inspectorate and is the UK’s leading certification body with regards to security systems. Wilson Alarm Systems is proud to hold the NSI Gold accreditation and in our latest post, we discuss why choosing an accredited security company is important.

When you work with an NSI accredited company you can have the peace of mind that the provider is trustworthy and has proved that they operate to the latest industry standards. To be awarded an NSI certificate, a company must show that they:

Meet all British standards
Meet the technical requirements of an appropriate scheme
Provide a high level of staff training to meet the latest standards
Have comprehensive insurance to protect customers and staff

Additionally, NSI auditors will regularly carry out checks on the companies awarded with an accreditation to ensure that technical competence and head-office management administration is kept to the highest standards.

Gold or Silver

NSI offers two types of accreditation including the silver and gold standard. Companies that are awarded a silver accreditation have successfully demonstrated that they operate in-line with industry best practices.

Those awarded with a gold standard accreditation have met all of the same standards of the silver scheme, but have also shown to have implemented and operate a full ISO9001 management system.

How to Tell if a Company is Accredited?

As a consumer, you can tell if a company has been accredited by the NSI and to what standard by looking for the hallmark of approval. For further peace of mind, you can check a companies accreditation by checking the NSI register.
