The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) is recognised as a leading certification body for the security and fire protection sectors in the UK.

NSI has provided certification services in the UK for over 40 years and is widely recognised by consumers, specifiers, police and insurers as a badge they can trust.

NSI approval is only given to those companies that are able to consistently meet its exacting standards. The NSI’s third-party certification provides reassurance to customers that installers are a reputable and trusted contractor that has been independently verified as meeting industry standards.

In the video below at IFSEC 2019, NSI Chief Executive Richard Jenkins describes his organisation’s role as the leading certification body for the UK’s security and fire protection sectors, alongside Max Linnemann, Head of Certification.
