This report has been generated by the ERNCIP Thematic Group on Video Surveillance for Security of Critical Infrastructure (TG-VS). It is widely recognised that standards play a major role as fundamental building blocks in product development, to ensure uniform quality in provision of services, and wider still in enabling the European Union (EU) security industry to be more competitive globally. However, there exist very few standards in the security domain and, in particular, in video surveillance systems.
The purpose of this document is to provide an overview of standards in video surveillance, including the need for standards, an overview of existing relevant standardisation efforts including gaps, and a roadmap for future standards development.
