The EU & BS Standards CIA Work To – Page 1 0f 4

CIA adhere to many different industry standards, and we are proud to be able to boast that we are often the first company in the UK to register documentation proving qualification.

Our in-house Quality Management System (QMS) fully complies with ISO9001:2008 and is endorsed by the NSI. (This is the latest Standard of the ISO9000 series and supersedes BS5750.)

    Local company with a good reputation and we have been very impressed so far – thank you.

    Your staff are always pleasant, helpful and informative.  It is also nice not having a different person every time we have a service.

  • Dr Dxxxxx Rowlands Castle, Hampshire

    When I need help it is available (with a smile, inferred by the telephone conversation!)

    Prompt service, helpful technicians, no attempt to sell us a ‘modernised’ alarm system.

  • Mr L********* Rowlands Castle, Hampshire

    CIA are easy to contact and their staff are helpful.
