With the number of SSAIB-registered firms now at a record 1500 – including companies providing electronic security, intruder alarms, manned protection and fire detection systems, as well as new services such as telecare systems for the social alarms sector – staff from the certification body will be on hand at London’s Olympia on April 24 and 25.
Representatives including Lynn Watts-Plumpkin, SSAIB’s Manned Services Scheme Manager, will be available on SSAIB’s stand to answer queries about issues such as the impact of the SIA’s proposed compulsory business regulation.
New from SSAIB, founded in 1994 and based in Tyne and Wear, is its Temporary Alarm Systems scheme for those firms supplying protection for void properties. The scheme covers construction areas, vacant premises and other buildings at risk from vandalism, arson, squatters, criminal damage and other harmful attacks. SSAIB also recently introduced a BAFE SP 205 UKAS-accredited scheme that deals with the certification of companies or individuals carrying out a fire risk assessment of any premises.
SSAIB is expanding its website services; an online application system is intended to make it easier for firms to apply for registration and aid SSAIB’s applications processing. A new electronic auditing package has also been developed to reduce paperwork and SSAIB auditors will be equipped with a hand-held device for checklists and audit reports.
