Access Control

bsia-access-control

Access control provides the ability to control, monitor and restrict the movement of people, assets or vehicles in, out and around a building or site. Products range from token based systems and digital keypads, through to biometric identification systems and the associated hardware.

Access control products are subject to fast-moving technological development. A major focus of the BSIA Access Control Committee is to raise awareness amongst end-users and specifiers of the different types of equipment that is available and the most appropriate environments for using them.

Recent discussions with the Association of British Insurers highlighted the fact that insurers would find it useful if the level of security offered by a particular type of access control is specifically defined, which has led the BSIA to look at the production of guidance material.

Although BSIA member companies provide training related to their products, there are a variety of generic skills relating to IT, locking systems and electro-magnetic compatibility, which are key to providing high-quality installation work. The Association has been working on training and qualification initiatives that meet these installer needs.

The BSIA works to ensure that companies in the sector can deal with the implications of quickly changing technology. The Association is heavily involved in the development of standards at both national and European level. The Committee has also changed the rules of membership to be more inclusive of other technologies related to access control - photo-ID badging being one example.

Training Providers Section

The Training Providers’ Section of the BSIA was launched in 2012, with membership available exclusively for companiesproviding quality training to security industry personnel. 

This move follows the original creation of a Training Providers' working group in April 2011, which brought together several companies that supply training services to the security industry in the UK. Following a successful seven months setting objectives and increasing membership, the Association has recognised the growing importance of this group by creating an official section of membership. 

The Training Providers' Section is extremely ambitious in its objectives and is committed to working with fellow training providers, colleges, security companies, trade organisations and the Government to drive standards, increase professionalism and ultimately improve the standard of training offered in the security industry.
