As an independent, not-for-profit organisation, NSI is the champion of high standards across the security and fire industries. Companies achieving approval through NSI must comply with relevant British and European Standards as well as meeting the requirements of the police, fire authorities and the insurance industry.
Why are NACOSS Gold Companies the best?
NACOSS Gold is only awarded to a company after rigorous checks have been conducted. These companies must display a satisfactory combination of technical expertise and business excellence. The NACOSS Gold scheme is accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Services (UKAS), which is recognised by the government.

Insurance Company Approval

The insurance industry, through the ABI – The Association of British Insurers, uses both sets of criteria in the approval of alarm installation companies. Before installing any burglar alarm, it is recommended that you forward the following for Insurance Approval:

  • a copy of the System Design Proposal
  • a copy of the Risk Analysis Report
  • Maintenance Contract Terms of Cover
  • Level of Compliant i.e. NSI (NACOSS) Gold
This will save you both money and anguish as your alarm system may not meet with their approval in terms of the grading of the risk and equipment specified.
