What is the SSAIB?

Founded in 1994, the SSAIB (Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board) is the leading Certification Body that offers a wide range of schemes for installers of security, fire and guarding services throughout the UK. Their aim is to promote high standards within these sectors and provide recognition for companies who are accredited with the SSAIB.

Becoming a member of the SSAIB isn’t easy and companies who are awarded the accreditation have to pass a long list of criteria before they are approved. This ensures that SSAIB approved companies are skilled, competent and worthy of the SSAIB accreditation.

When it comes to security it’s important that consumers know they are dealing with a reputable, trustworthy and reliable company.
