Self assessment tool
How well does your organisation comply with the 12 guiding
principles of the surveillance camera code of practice? Complete
this easy to use self assessment tool to ﬁnd out if you do.
Using this tool
This self assessment tool will help you and your organisation identify if you’re complying
with the principles in the code. It should be completed in conjunction with the
surveillance camera code of practice. The tool will help you show how well you comply
with each principle. It is possible to be largely compliant with some principles and to fall
short against others. As a result you will note that at the end of the questions against
each principle there is a space to include an action plan. This is to enable you to put
actions in place over the next year to improve your compliance to that principle. These
boxes can also be used to make a note of what evidence you could produce if required
to show your compliance to that principle.
The document contains a combination of open and closed questions. For the open
questions there is a limit on how much you can write, so please feel free to include any
additional notes as an annex to the document – there are additional blank pages at the
end of the tool.
We do not want you to send the self assessment response to us. However, in the interest
of transparency we encourage you to publish the self assessment on your website.
The self assessment is for you to satisfy yourself and those that you surveille that you
meet the principles and identify any additional work to show compliance.
We would like you to let us know that you have completed this document as this will
enable us to understand the level of uptake. Also please let us know if you will be
interested in working towards certiﬁcation against the surveillance camera code of
practice in the near future or just be added to our mailing list.
This is the ﬁrst edition of the self assessment tool which will evolve over time.
