The Private Security Authority has announced it is now accepting license applications from companies providing installation and maintenance of CCTV and Access Control systems in the Republic of Ireland. From 1st October 2012 licenses will be mandatory for companies providing these services.
The Private Security Industry Authority is inviting submissions from interested parties on its draft document "Requirements for CCTV Installation". The PSA is planning to commence licensing in the latter half of 2010.
Security companies involved in the installation of CCTV systems will be required to attain certification of compliance with this specification document as well as Standard Recommendation 40:2005 (SR 40:2005).
CerticCS, a new independent certification body, was launched at Clontarf Castle Hotel, Dublin, on 21 January 2009. CerticCS is a security-specific body that provides certification schemes for security companies involved in the installation of electronic security systems and providers of guarding, cash-in-transit and alarm monitoring services.
