CCTV Industry In UK Shows High Awareness Levels Of Regulation

British Security Industry Association (BSIA) : 30 November, 2010  (Company News)
A survey conducted by the British Security Industry Association reveals the attitude of the CCTV sector in the UK towards industry regulation
Research carried out by the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) amongst its CCTV section members has confirmed that the sector understands the vital role played by regulation.

In the survey, nearly 56% of respondents stated that they are happy with the current level of regulation and a further 33% said that they would welcome additional measures in the future.

The survey results are a key indicator of the fact that, contrary to what some commentators may believe, the industry is not against the government exercising reasonable control over the use of CCTV systems - provided that there is adequate consultation with the key parties involved. The BSIA believes that it is in everybody's interest that this technology is applied to best effect to fight crime - and the ongoing terrorist threat - within an agreed framework, which addresses privacy concerns and other issues, so the public's largely positive regard for CCTV can be maintained.

This research undoubtedly comes at a pivotal time for CCTV and security policy, following signals about an increase in CCTV regulations by the government and the announcement of forthcoming changes to the Security Industry Authority (SIA) with the introduction of a phased transition to a new regulatory regime.

Pauline Norstrom, Chairman of the BSIA's CCTV Section, says "The BSIA's CCTV section has always been a strong advocate of best practice and standards. This is underscored by the fact that we played an advisory role on the National CCTV Strategy under the previous administration, and are keen to work closely with the new Government on any future regulatory plans for CCTV. These survey findings certainly serve to highlight the industry's appreciation of the importance of regulation in the CCTV sector to maintain the highest possible standards on the ground.
