New CEN Workshop - Towards embedding socio-legal requirements in the certification of security systems: 'Guidelines for the evaluation of installed security systems, based on S-T-E-Fi criteria' 

Harmonizing the European security market calls for a holistic, pan-European certification scheme. The FP7-funded project CRISP (Evaluation and Certification Schemes for Security Products) aims to develop a novel evaluation and certification methodology for security systems that integrates technical, social and legal dimensions (Security, Trust, Efficiency and Freedom Infringement) as assessment criteria. Data protection authorities, security industry manufacturers, installers and their associations, end users of video surveillance systems and certification bodies are invited to share their expertise to formulate requirements for the methodology and S-T-E-Fi criteria. The end result is the adoption of a CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA), a best practices document for further standardisation efforts and input for the development of a future certification scheme.

The kick-off meeting will be held on 17 October, at the premises of NEN in Delft, The Netherlands. All interested parties are welcome to register for participation and submit comments on the draft project plan to Alina Iatan.
