If you require an access control system from us then we will request an image of the staff member, their full name & job title so that we can create an access badge. However once this has been created, all information and reference to them will be deleted to comply with GDPR.
Should you then need replacement badges if any are lost or damaged, then we will re-request the information from yourselves.
All Radium staff are vetted to BS7858, with Disclosure of convictions (APPENDIX C), vetted by our local constabulary.
Further information on these vetting standards can be found in the below section.
NPCC Security Systems Policy

It sets out technical and procedural requirements that the private security industry, involved in providing the installation, maintenance and monitoring of such systems, must follow in order to gain a police response to a security system on behalf of their customers.activation.
Radium adhere to this policy and meet all the requirements laid out by the police force, so you can be sure that if you have Radium monitored system, the police will always respond should you receive an activation.
New Compulsory Requirements for ECS Cards
Since January 2021 there have been new requirements put into place for Fire, Emergency and Security Systems (FESS) Electrotechnical Certification Scheme (ECS) occupations.
This is to try and combat security systems and the like being installed by non-qualified personnel. This sets the qualification requirement at Level 3 for new entrants to the industry with several different routes for applicants to take depending on the industry they work within. This sets a minimum standard for those who install and maintain fire, emergency and security systems. This involves much training for the engineers and passing exams at the end in order to gain this qualification.
You can be sure that Radium's engineers are either undertaking this process currently, or have completed it already and hold all the qualifications necessary to carry out work on your property.
