The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) – the independent certification body specialising in the security, guarding and fire sectors – has appointed Ron Panter as security and fire systems auditor and lead auditor for ISO 9001. Panter will be based in Surrey and London.

Panter started his career in auditing with the London Electricity Board where he held a variety of customer service and quality management roles. He subsequently spent over 20 years as a quality manager for a NACOSS Gold and ARC-approved company where he was responsible for facilitating the NSI audit process.

“The knowledge and experience Ron brings with him further increases our auditing capability to deliver combined fire safety and security audits, in turn benefiting our approved companies and the industry at large as we continue to work with partners across the sector to raise standards,” said NSI CEO Richard Jenkins.

The NSI provides robust auditing by a dedicated team of in-house experts to verify compliance with relevant British and European Standards, Codes of Practice and certification schemes developed by Industry Bodies and Associations.

End users who choose to contract NSI approved companies can be assured of security and fire safety services delivered to the highest standards by businesses committed to quality.
