AVA Fire and Secuirty is a registered member of the Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board (SSAIB) which is the leading certification body for organisations providing security systems and services, fire detection and alarm systems, telecare systems and services, manned security services and monitoring services.
SSAIB’s schemes comply with all Police policies (England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic) and insurers – often as a condition of their underwriting – place particular demands on security and fire safety system providers. In the event of an incident, insurers will need to be satisfied that all reasonable precautions have been taken to mitigate risk.
The costs associated with losses in the aftermath of an incident are not just limited to the immediate losses – as such incidents often lead to longer term consequential losses to the business. Using a certificated provider should minimise the likelihood of such events and demonstrate that all reasonable steps have been taken.
Standards and Guidance
SSAIB trained auditors provide guidance and support to certificated companies and their clients on standards and technical issues. As a Certification Body – SSAIB participate in technical standards development to ensure that they are workable and relevant to the needs of the industry and the marketplace.
SSAIB certificated companies enjoy insurance approval. For most installations requiring a security or fire system for insurance purposes, the Insurer will insist that a Third-Party Certificated provider (e.g. SSAIB) is employed.
SSAIB satisfies NPCC and Police Service of Scotland requirements, enabling all certificated companies to apply for URNs for their monitored systems.
Third Party Certification
