Selectamark actively seeks to obtain standards to demonstrate its commitment to delivering security solutions of the highest quality.
The commitment is significant in both management time and money but we believe that everyone wins as a result. We, as a company, have better internal controls and you, as our customer, benefit from the peace of mind that we are customer focused and continue to deliver quality products. In fact, all Police, Local Authorities, NHS departments and Universities are required to ask for these standards.

Secured by Design
Secured by Design is the UK Police flagship initiative supporting the principles of designing out crime. It is supported and managed by the National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC) and has the backing of the Home Office. It has been drawn up in consultation with the Department for Transport, Local Government & Regions (formerly DETR) as well as trade, industry and standards organizations.
Secured by Design (SBD) is the corporate title for a family of national police projects involving the design for new homes, refurbished homes, commercial premises, car parks and other police crime prevention projects.
Secured by Design licensed company status is awarded to those companies producing security products which pass standards and tests nominated by the police service as "Police Preferred Specification". Companies appearing on the product categories hold the Secured by Design Licence and produce one or more products, which meet technical standards endorsed by NPCC.
