The CCTV User Group

We are the voice of 

Public Space Surveillance in the UK

About Us

The CCTV User Group was formed in the mid-1990s to support CCTV Managers and to create policy & procedures to manage the use of this emerging new form of evidence.


The original CCTV Code of Practice was developed by the CCTV User Group by those early pioneers of this technology in search of compliance, regulation, image quality standards and the protection of the privacy of the UK public.

Promoting Voluntary Adoption of the 

Surveillance Camera Commissioners

Code of Practice

The CCTV User Group & NASCAM are committed to supporting those organisations that are keen to be a voluntary adopter of the Surveillance Camera Commissioner's Surveillance Camera Code of Practice.  We are keen to work with multiple organisations to support this strategy.
