NSI approval options
Specialist Services Gold
NSI’s premier specialist services scheme is designed for companies who meet the industry’s highest technical standards and maintain a commitment to continual improvement with an ISO 9001 Quality Management System.
Specialist Services Silver
NSI's Specialist Services Silver scheme is designed as a stepping stone towards Specialist Services Gold.
It requires companies to meet the same high level of technical competence as the Specialist Services Gold scheme.
Our scheme covers a wide range of areas
within the Security Guarding, Cash and Specialist Services sectors and involves compliance with British and NSI Codes of Practice. The specialist services are detailed below:
Approval through an NSI scheme proves that you consistently meet the highest standards, including the relevant British Standards, reinforcing the reliability of your company.
Differentiate your business and brand awareness amongst buyers and specifiers.
Approval by NSI requires inspection to recognised British standards/Codes of Practice. Before an inspection for approval can take place, companies should ensure they have a copy of the appropriate Standard.
Relevant British Standards and International Standards are available to NSI approved companies and applicants through our Online Standards Subscription Service or hard copies and electronic copies can be purchased through NSI at a preferential rate.
New code - provision of labour in the security and events sectors
In response to feedback and evidence of poor practices that threaten the credibility of our industry, NSI has developed a Code of Practice for the Provision of Labour in the Security and Events Sectors (NCP 119).
This code enhances confidence in the full supply chain for buyers, that areas such as screening, right to work, payment of minimum wage and SIA licensing are adhered to for all personnel supplied by labour providers.
