As of June 21, 2023, Millennium Security is pleased to announce that we have recently completed our SSAIB audit and again obtained certifications for both VSS (Verified Secure Systems) on construction sites and void properties. These certifications reflect our commitment to maintaining the highest standards in the security industry.

What is the SSAIB?

Established in 1994, the SSAIB has emerged as the foremost certification body in the United Kingdom for providers of security solutions and services. These encompass various areas such as security technology installation, manned guarding, and fire services. As an approved body by the Security Industry Association (SIA), the SSAIB offers a diverse range of accreditations and schemes tailored to organisations operating within this industry. The primary objective of the SSAIB is to foster and uphold the highest standards in the security sector, granting well-deserved recognition to outstanding organisations through the prestigious SSAIB accreditation.

Why choose an SSAIB-certified company?

Receiving an SSAIB certification is a testament to excellence, as it entails undergoing an independent audit and meeting stringent criteria before approval. Unlike simply paying a fee to join, certified companies must demonstrate technical and managerial competence through an inspection of their processes and procedures. This evaluation is benchmarked against a national standard, making it a significant achievement.

Opting for an SSAIB-certified company guarantees that you are engaging with highly skilled and proficient professionals who provide exceptional service and quality. They ensure the protection of your business from the severe consequences of theft, criminal damage, or fire. By choosing a certified provider, you can be confident that they have successfully met the rigorous standards of quality and performance assessed by an impartial third-party body. Moreover, SSAIB certifications are subject to regular checks every three years to ensure ongoing compliance and validity.

In today’s insurance landscape, many insurers demand specific evidence that businesses have taken reasonable steps to mitigate risks and safeguard their staff and assets. By selecting an SSAIB-certified security provider, you not only meet but surpass such requirements, making the insurance claim process smoother in the event of unfortunate incidents.
Opting for a certified organisation can lead to significant time and cost savings. Furthermore, all SSAIB schemes comply with the policies established by the UK police, providing comprehensive and reliable security solutions.

Choosing an SSAIB-certified company ensures you are partnering with experts who have undergone rigorous assessments, guaranteeing their technical and managerial competence. Their certification is regularly reviewed, and they exceed industry standards, making them the ideal choice to protect your business. By opting for a certified provider, you not only mitigate risks effectively but also enjoy potential cost and time savings. Additionally, their compliance with UK police policies further strengthens their credibility.

What does the SSAIB look for?

As part of the comprehensive certification process, the SSAIB will check that the company in question meets the following criteria:

● Personnel undergo screening according to the required British standard.
● Management and staff demonstrate experience and competence.
● Insurance coverage aligns with the nature and scope of the work performed.
● Operating premises are suitable for the company’s activities, and all
documentation and records are securely maintained.
● Adherence to best practice standards is ensured.
● The company possesses adequate resources and staff to deliver the services
● Compliance with relevant British or European standards and codes of practice
is maintained.
● All necessary identity cards are carried at all times.
