Corps Monitoring’s ARC achieves NSI Gold II recertification

CORPS MONITORING – a division of independent specialist security solutions provider Corps Security – has been recertified for operations at its Alarm Receiving Centre following a recent National Security Inspectorate (NSI) Gold Category II audit procedure.

That achievement rating is the highest accreditation available in the UK for alarm monitoring services and means Corps Monitoring can accept any alarming device, from homes through to the Ministry of Defence and all points in-between including commercial sites, cash reserves and safe deposits.

In order to pass the NSI’s audit procedures, the company involved must maintain British NSI standards, while simultaneously ensuring the most stringent compliance with the company’s own policies.

The award of this certification demonstrates Corps Monitoring’s ongoing commitment to expert specialist security services, including lone worker monitoring and CCTV system monitoring plus intruder alarm and fire alarm system monitoring.

Due to the number of accreditations Corps Monitoring holds within the NSI’s Gold II category, the notoriously thorough inspection takes place every six months, covering the aforementioned lone worker monitoring, CCTV monitoring, intruder alarm and fire alarm system monitoring across multiple audit days.

In fact, Corps Monitoring’s dedicated Alarm Receiving Centre has consistently achieved the highest-level results through the NSI audit procedure.

Never standing still

To achieve NSI Gold approval, stringent preparation and planning is essential. Corps Monitoring’s team holds monthly management meetings in-between the audits to ensure data logging and processes are strictly observed and also that suggested actions are reviewed alongside any specific notes recorded during the previous audit process.

Andrea Strong, managing director at Corps Monitoring, affirmed: “We’re extremely proud of our ongoing success with the NSI Gold Category II accreditation. We pride ourselves on our consistently high standards as maintained by the team members based at Corps Monitoring’s Alarm Receiving Centre. Our performance and instant transparency affords Corps Monitoring’s clients continual peace of mind, while also supporting the audit process.”

Strong added: “The success of Corps Monitoring’s Alarm Receiving Centre carries additional benefits for security installers working with Corps Monitoring for their own auditing processes. They can be secure in the knowledge that they’re receiving an industry-leading service.”

Corps Monitoring operates across diverse market sectors providing services on an independent basis or as part of an integrated solution incorporating security services. The Corps Monitoring Centre is one of the most advanced monitoring facilities in the UK and is also underpinned by BS 5979, BS 8418, BS 8484 and ISO 9001:2008 certifications.
