SBD Alarm Standard

What is the SBD Alarm Standard?

Secured by Design (SBD) is the official police security initiative. 

  • The SBD Alarm Standard builds on police and industry knowledge and expertise to produce a new, enhanced Alarm Standard that will provide a high quality alarm system and reduce false calls
  • Installers meeting the SBD Alarm Standard following an assessment from their respective Alarm Inspectorate Body, now have the option of joining the new SBD scheme enabling  both buyers to have confidence in installers utilising the trusted ‘Police Preferred Specification’ branding and installers to utilise the branding to gain a marketing advantage
  • This is not a replacement for the National Police Chiefs Council Security Systems Policy (NPCC SSP)
  • This is not an alternative for certification by a UKAS accredited certification body (currently delivered by NSI or SSAIB)
