How They Got Started
The NSI started as the National Supervisory Council for Intruder Alarms (NSCIA) in 1971, as a solution to poor quality equipment and installers in the security alarm market. Two decades later, the NSCIA merged with the Security Systems Inspectorate (SSI) to make up the National Approval Council for Security Systems (NACOSS). The role of NACOSS was to improve standards to match the insurance sector and Police national alarms policy tougher requirements.
The Inspectorate of the Security Industry (ISI) came about in 1992 and included the addition of a voluntary inspection regime. The ISI and NACOSS merged nine years later, becoming the National Security Inspectorate (NSI), creating one definitive certification body covering all aspects of the security industry.
