CRISP (Evaluation and Certification Schemes for Security Products) is a three year project (April 2014 – March 2017) that aims to facilitate a harmonised playing field for the European security industry by developing an innovative evaluation and certification methodology for the CRISP certification scheme for security systems. The CRISP scheme will:
- Contribute to measures that increase citizen trust and confidence in security technologies through the evaluation and certification of social and legal impacts of security systems ;
- Facilitate a more harmonised playing field for the European security industry by providing pan-European certification for security systems. The scheme is intended to be accepted across Europe, which will enhance competitiveness by reducing commercialisation costs for the industry;
- Support the goal to provide protection in an efficient manner.
The methodology integrates the Security, Trust, Efficiency and Freedom infringement (S-T-E-Fi) dimensions in its evaluation stage. This is a highly innovative approach, as certification has, to date, primarily focused on the assessment of technical requirements for security systems.
This novel approach to the inclusion of social and legal aspects in evaluation and certification methodology will first be piloted for video surveillance systems, to test and refine the approach. After the pilot phase, it is foreseen that the CRISP scheme can be extended to include other types of security systems.
