The Surveillance Camera Commissioner, with the British Standards Institution (BSI), are carrying out research to identify where people and organisations go to obtain information about CCTV and the support they require.
Researchers have already carried out some in depth interviews with CCTV operators, installers, manufacturers and law enforcers. The Surveillance Camera Commissioner and BSI are now conducting a survey and would like to get responses from a range of organisations as well as members of the public.
Tony Porter, Surveillance Camera Commissioner said:
“The standards and information framework for CCTV is horribly complex. My standards group has been working hard to look at how we can simplify it. Whilst we’re making some headway this piece of research lead by BSI will really help inform how we can continue to make things easier for people who use CCTV day in and day out. I’d urge anyone with an interest in CCTV to complete it.”
The findings will be used to:
- raise awareness of the regulatory environment, the role of standards and the surveillance camera code of practice
- increase the uptake of the standards and other information relating to CCTV
- support the uptake and use of the standards and code of practice
The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
The survey will run until the end of January 2016.
