The standards applicable to the systems we install (CCTV / Access Control ) require us to maintain documents (contracts / specifications / etc) & records (maintenance & repair visits / disconnection / removal of equipment for repair etc) for the systems we install. These documents & the records are stored securely & are made available to SSAIB inspectors during assessment for recognition & routine inspections.
 
b.      Complaints Procedure.
We have a complaints procedure relating to the logging of complaints & the initiation of corrective action. The procedure also include a regular review of the complaints log to ensure corrective action is being implemented & the causes of the complaints are identified & actions taken to prevent further complaints, of a similar nature, arising. This review is at monthly intervals.   
 
Identity Cards.

Identity cards are provided for all personnel expected to need access to customer’s premises. They include a photograph of the holder, the signature of the holder & details of our organization. The card has an expire date & our procedure includes a requirement that all cards are returned to us when the individual leaves the employment of Tringmain Security.

 
We also provide evidence of the following:
 
A. Repute & Experience of Management.

The persons responsible for the day to day operation of our organization & those in a position to influence the running of the organization e.g. the owners or those with a significant financial interest, must be reputable persons of good character. In practical terms this means we must not have any criminal convictions or associate with known criminals or persons of ill repute. The SSAIB will coincide the acceptability of those responsible for managing, or being in a position to influence, the operation of an applicant or registered installer.

 
B. Staff.
Our individuals involved in the design, installation, maintenance & repair of the systems wen install are competent to carry out the tasks allocated to them.

BS requires us to provide 24 hour repair services for contracted systems which specifically include 24hr options & provide a response within four hours to systems including signaling equipment used to initiate a police response. We are able to demonstrate how our organization with meet these requirements.
 
D. Maintenance Contracts.
Maintenance of security systems is essential if those systems are to operate reliably. Proper maintenance is particularly important for intruder alarm systems where false alarms are responsible for wasting of a great deal of police resource. We always offer a maintenance contract for each system installed. Our customer cannot be forced to enter into a maintenance contract but we ensure the customer is aware of the problems that might arise if equipment is not properly maintained. The ssaib inspector checks evidence that we are offering maintenance contracts for all systems installed.
 
E. Screening of Personnel.
All relevant staff, those employed in the design, installation, maintenance & repair of the systems we supply & those with access to information of a confidential nature (contracts / specifications) are screened in conformance with BS 7858.
