Video: Find out about the PSTI Act & the SBD Secure Connected Device accreditation

Discover the recent legislation which affects all consumer-connectable IoT products, as well as how SBD’s Secure Connected Device accreditation can help businesses achieve compliance with this law in this special SBD IoT video.

With the Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Act 2022 having been enacted into UK law, and the government now announcing that companies have until 29th April 2024 to implement the changes put forth in the legislation, industry professionals and manufacturers of consumer IoT products need to get up to speed with what is required of them.

The new law relates to a huge, varied range of connected safety-relevant products and requires manufacturers, importers and distributors to ensure that minimum security requirements are met in relation to consumer connectable products. This includes, but is not limited to, safety-relevant products such as door locks, home automation and alarm systems, smart doorbells, smoke detectors, connected fridges, washers, freezers, coffee machines and cameras.

This is where our Secure Connected Device accreditation, developed in consultation with the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT), comes in. It helps companies to get their products appropriately assessed against all 13 provisions of the ETSI EN 303 645 standard, a requirement that goes beyond the Government’s legislation, so that they can not only demonstrate their compliance with the legislation, but it also protects them, their products and customers.
