Why choose an NSI approved company?

By March 7, 2018No Comments

Jensen Security and Fire Systems is the only company in Cambridgeshire that has NSI Gold accreditation for fire and security- but what does that exactly mean, and why choose an NSI approved company?

The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) is recognised as the leading professional body for the security and fire protection industries in the UK. The NSI is the specialist approvals and certification body that inspects companies providing home security, business security and fire safety services. The NSI has provided certification services for over 40 years and is widely recognised by consumers, specifiers, police and insurers as the badge they can trust. NSI approval is only given to those companies that are able to consistently meet specified standards.

Businesses and homeowners who choose NSI approved companies have the reassurance that their contractors will work to the highest industry standards demanded by the Police, Fire and Rescue Services and the insurance industry. The NSI Directory (which can be found at lists all the companies who have successfully achieved NSI certification. Third party certification provides reassurance to customers that you are a reputable and trusted contractor that has been independently verified as meeting industry standards. NSI approved companies installing fire detection systems invite NSI to inspect their design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of fire detection and alarm systems, fixed gaseous fire suppression systems and their maintenance of portable fire extinguishers

NSI has defined a 2 tier development model – Silver and Gold – to encourage the improvement of standards as companies grow in size and expand their skills base into additional areas. Silver is designed for ‘Product Certification’ Refers to the ‘Product Certification’ against sector specific standards, e.g. BS7858, BS8243. Gold builds on product Certification to incorporate Quality Management System Certification. The combination of the Quality Management Systems and the relevant sector specific product or service represents the Gold standard of certification.  This level holds the greatest perceived value across industry and by the police, fire and rescue services and insurers.

 Jensen Security and Fire Systems have been thoroughly vetted and accredited to Gold standard by NSI.
