What is BS 7499:2007?

BS 7499 gives best practice recommendations for organisations that provide and manage security services on static sites or on a patrol basis. These services include security systems in buildings, alarm systems, or security personnel patrolling a particular site. The standard doesn’t include cash-in-transit services, secure parcel services, keyholding and response services, door supervisors, event stewarding, or the management and operation of closed-circuit television.

How does it work?

BS 7499 explains the normative references as well as the terms and conditions relating to security services. It then takes an in-depth look at the organisation and its resources to ensure the right safety measures are put in place. Other topics include best practice services and the training of security personnel. 

Who should buy it?

  • Organisations providing security services
  • Organisations installing alarm systems
  • Anyone responsible for security systems in buildings
  • Security service training officers

What is new?

BS 7499:2007 replaces BS 7499:2002 which is now withdrawn.
