The UK Surveillance Camera Commissioner, Tony Porter, has teamed up with the BSI to offer a series of workshops to encourage best practice, raise standards and encourage compliance with the principles laid down in the Surveillance Camera Code of Practice published in June 2013.
Tony Porter commented: “I want to raise standards across the industry from installers through to end users. It’s really important that people have easy access to a coherent and simple set of standards. These forthcoming workshops are designed to be interactive and will give people the opportunity to shape standards that directly affect what they do.”
The workshops will be taking place in November in Manchester, Bristol and London. Each event will look at information (standards, training and guidance) currently available to CCTV/surveillance camera users, and explore the most effective way to structure and deliver this information.
These free workshops will aim to tease out exactly what information and guidance is required by users and how it should be presented and shared (with regard to private users, too) and also whether there are any gaps in existing standards and guidance.
Delegates will find out about the background to providing a national framework of relevant information on standards, training and guidance for specifiers and users and hear from Tony Porter and the CCTV Standards Group about Best Practice in surveillance.
