CCTV maintenance Code of Practice updated by BSIA
The code of practice relating to Maintenance of CCTV Surveillance Systems issued by the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) has recently been revised to ensure full compatibility with the principles of the Surveillance Camera Code of Practice.
The revised code of practice complements the updated Code of Practice and associated guidance for Planning, Design, Installation and Operation of CCTV Surveillance Systems (BSIA Form 109), which was published in 2014, and aims to reflect the current CCTV landscape in terms of new standards and the constant evolution of technology in this area.
Dave Wilkinson, Director of Technical Services at the BSIA, comments: “The BSIA has developed this guide into a full Code of Practice and updated it in order to ensure that it is fully aligned with current Government thinking, as set out by the Surveillance Camera Commissioner’s Code of Practice.
“BSIA members are supportive of the work of the Surveillance Camera Commissioner and we are pleased to be able to update the Code of Practice to align with this important work. As part of our commitment to ensuring that our guidance reflects the very latest CCTV standards, the Association is also currently producing guidance surrounding the new BS EN 62676 CCTV standards, which are being published in the UK and already feature on Surveillance Camera Commissioner’s website as good practice in the area of the use of CCTV.”
