Secured by Design (SBD) announces new dedicated standard for access control systems
Secured by Design (SBD), the national police crime prevention initiative in the UK, has partnered with UL, a global safety science organisation, to develop and launch the first security standard for access control equipment units in the UK, the organizations have recently announced.
UL 293 is the first standard of its kind developed specifically for use in the United Kingdom (UK).
Access control units certified to UL 293 will continue to allow unrestricted access to properly authorised users whilst complying with SBD’s building security standards to restrict unauthorised entry and make premises sufficiently robust to resist malicious electronic and physical attack.
Mick Reynolds, Senior Development Officer, SBD, said: “It’s a wonderful case of SBD working with a standards authority to produce a standard that has not been done anywhere else before.”
