Choice has gained Constructionline accreditation (Silver) in a move aimed to broaden opportunities for the business’ fire and security capabilities within the UK construction sector.
Government’s new CCTV certification scheme
The growing importance and increasing dominance of internet/network-based CCTV security has brought with it the inherent risks to business and personal safety associated with cyber-attacks (hacking) and data theft. These have been illustrated in recent years by a number of high profile cases that have made news headlines.
Choice has boosted its credentials as a preferred supplier to the financial sector by gaining registered status within the Financial Services Qualification System (FSQS) Stage 2 as part of its compliance requirement for customer Santander. FSQS is designed to standardise and manage requests for compliance and assurance data in a one-for-all submission process which serves the major financial services organisations that have adopted the system.
Choice among the first to acquire compulsory new QA standard
Choice has become one of the first tranche of UK fire and security businesses to successfully transition to the award of ISO 9001:2015 quality assurance status from that of ISO 9001:2008. This compulsory requirement covers both the company’s NSI Security Gold Scheme and NSI Fire Gold Scheme certifications. It was confirmed following Choice’s most recent NSI Surveillance Audit, achieved well ahead of the 14th September 2018 deadline.
