As the mandatory Surveillance Camera System Regulation officially came into effect in the first week of April 2023, The National Security Services Company (SAFE), the leading security company driving the transformation of KSA's security ecosystem, reaffirms its ongoing dedication to assisting all parties affected by the new legislation.
The new regulation applies to all ministries and governmental agencies, oil and gas installations, power generation and water desalination plants, tourist accommodations (such as hotels and furnished apartments), commercial complexes and centers, financial institutions, residential complexes, mosques, medical care facilities, warehouses, streets, roads, and highways, restaurants and cafes, events and exhibitions, as well as public and private museums, among others.
Camera systems must be operational at all times, and recordings must be stored and kept for a certain amount of time. In the event of an incident, entities with relevant footage will be notified to retain the footage until the conclusion of the investigation and authorities' clearance. In addition, the issuance and renewal of operating licenses and commercial registrations will require full compliance with the new Surveillance Camera System regulations.
