The National Security Inspectorate (NSI), is making final preparations for The Security Event taking place next week on 5-7 April at the NEC in Birmingham. The UK’s premier Certification Body for the security and fire safety sectors will be sharing important updates on industry standards with professional installers and integrators in the event theatres and taking the opportunity to discuss specific queries on a one-to-one basis on the NSI stand (3/L20).
Installers are invited to visit NSI’s stand to say hello and to spend some time learning how more than 2000 companies across the United Kingdom are benefitting from NSI as their not-for-profit, specialist Certification Body, helping to improve their business’ performance. Advisors will be on hand to explain the straightforward application process, costs and timescales. NSI approved companies and invited guests attending on Tuesday (5th April) are also warmly invited to attend a private Drinks Reception taking place at 15:30.
NSI’s Director of Approval Schemes, Matthew Holiday and Approval Schemes Manager (Systems), John Davidson, will both be presenting in the Fire and Security Installer Theatre. Matthew will talk about ‘BS 8418:2021 for Detector-Activated Surveillance Systems – The Game Changer For Police Response’ (5 April at 14:00); and ‘Cyber Security – are security systems affected?’ (6 April at 11:15). John will be sharing ‘Fire Risk Assessment & Evacuation Alert Systems – A Certification Body’s Perspective on Demonstrating Competence’ (7 April at 12:00). Matthew will also be participating in the event’s opening panel session in the Security in Practice Theatre at 10:30 on Tuesday 5th April: ‘The State of the Industry – What are Today’s and Tomorrow’s Priorities?’
NSI’s much-loved Turkmenian Eagle Owl, ‘Cash’, depicted in the coveted Gold and Silver medals produced by the Royal Mint, will be on the stand next Tuesday (5th) and Wednesday (6th) and NSI is encouraging visitors to take photos with Cash showing their best ‘wings-out’ impression. Visitors sharing their photos on Twitter and LinkedIn will receive a free gift on the stand.
NSI CEO Richard Jenkins commented: “Continual improvement is one of the most effective ways of raising standards within the security sector and we look forward to sharing knowledge and expertise at next week’s event in Birmingham. It promises to be a lively and informative three days for UK installers, showcasing the latest technologies, products, services and insights and our presentations have been carefully considered to give installers the latest information on topical subjects. We very much look forward to meeting industry contacts old and new.”
