Boston Networks, an established and recognised Scottish-based provider of intelligent building solutions and fixed and wireless networks, has received recognition of its commitment to providing security and fire safety services of the highest standard with the award of two Gold medals of approval from the National Security Inspectorate (NSI), the specialist Certification Body for the UK’s security and fire safety sectors.

Boston Networks has achieved NSI NACOSS Gold approval for CCTV, Access Control and Intruder Alarm Systems and NSI Fire Gold approval for Fire Detection and Alarm Systems (BAFE scheme SP203-1).

NSI NACOSS Gold and Fire Gold approval (recognised by BAFE, the third party registration organisation for the fire sector) accreditations further demonstrate Boston Networks as a leading player in the Scottish fire and security market and a company fully committed to the highest standards of professionalism, quality and customer service.

Robert Moore, fire systems director at Boston Networks, commented: “Achieving NSI NACOSS Gold, Fire Gold and BAFE status is testament to the drive and dedication of the Boston Networks team members who have worked endlessly to expand our fire and security division and achieve these prestigious accreditations. Being recognised by the leading industry body will give us an important edge over our competitors and will allow us to continue to differentiate our service offering.”

Security and fire safety services

Richard Jenkins, the NSI’s CEO, responded: “To achieve double NSI Gold approval and BAFE recognition simultaneously is a fantastic accomplishment for Boston Networks. The business is evidently committed to providing security and fire safety services of the highest order in Scotland. By seeking independent verification from the NSI, the company is clearly demonstrating this to its clients.”

Jenkins continued: “Going forward, Boston Networks has set in place processes and procedures that will be continually reviewed and improved through the management of its Quality Management System which the NSI will continue to verify, along with compliance to sector standards on an ongoing basis. We wish Boston Networks every success for the future.”

*NSI GOLD approval is widely recognised as the security and fire sector’s premier badge of trust and is only awarded to those companies who consistently meet exacting standards
