Commission for Social Care and Inspection
Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI) was launched in April 2004 and forms the single, independent inspectorate for social care in England. The Commission was created by the Health and Social Care Act 2003 (Community Health and Standards) and comprises the work formerly undertaken by:
- Social Services Inspectorate (SSI);
- SSI / Audit Commission Joint Review Team;
- National Care Standards Commission (NCSC).
CSCI operates within the public sector as part of central government. The Commission is known as an NDPB (Non- Departmental Public Body) and is responsible for the regulation of social care services in England. CSCI currently operates from 91 individual offices, based on 83 sites throughout the country.
AMAG Technology was chosen as the principal security provider for NCSC (prior to the formation of CSCI) and the first AMAG Technology installations were operational from 2001/02. These 81 offices are now owned by CSCI and are still secured by AMAG Technology, maintaining the strong business relationship forged during years previous. The principal component of the existing security systems is access control door technology, incorporating various card readers throughout each site.
