Details

Self-certification allows manufacturers of surveillance camera devices and components to clearly demonstrate that their products meet minimum requirements to ensure that they are secure by default and secure by design.

It will mean that the UKs resilience against cyber security attacks via VSSs is higher. The new requirements are an important step forward for manufacturers, installers and users alike in providing the best possible assurance for stakeholders that products arent vulnerable to cyberattacks.

The first document sets out what criteria products must meet to be considered secure by default.

The second document is the self-certification form. Once completed this should be sent to the Surveillance Camera Commissioners Office.

The third document is a list of organisations that have self-certified their products as secure by default and have been issued with the Commissioners certification mark.
