This new code of practice is to be implemented by 1st September 2013; however it can be used straight away as it overlaps with the current NCP 30.
The main changes are
1 – the method of identifying an individual to an access control system is now called a “credential”. Credentials are something you know (a code number), something you hold (a token) or something you are (biometric)
2 – the classification of access points has gone down from 5 to 4 classes, which are security related: class 1 (low risk), class 2 (low to medium risk), class 3 (medium to high risk) and class 4 (high risk).
Clarion is already working to NCP 109 and will deliver a properly designed access control systems, allowing for integration with other security systems to enhance the protection of employees, buildings and assets.
