Surveillance Camera Commissioner standards workshops (Manchester, Bristol and London)

The Surveillance Camera Commissioner (SCC), Tony Porter, is determined to ensure that camera systems are used to protect communities rather than spy on them.


In partnership with British Standards Institution (BSI) he wants to encourage best practice, raise standards and encourage compliance with the principles in the Code of Practice.

Together we want to identify the best ways to help organisations – both public and private - that must choose, specify, install and use CCTV in accordance with the Code. We also want to find the most effective means of providing appropriate guidance and information to those who need it.

Tony Porter said “I want to raise standards across the industry from installers to end users. It’s really important that people have easy access to a coherent and simple set of standards. These workshops are interactive and will give people the opportunity to shape standards that directly affect what they do.”

Your ideas are valuable to us so please join us for one of our free stakeholder workshops, to share ideas and help shape the future of CCTV.

They will be taking place in Manchester, Bristol and London and you can find more information and registration details on the BSI website.
