Feckless, Incompetent, Useless, Compromised, Corrupt.
Does anyone actually have a better word which is not in French that summarises the New Zealand Security Association?
It is almost April and as of yet, the NZSA has failed to front up. Either to industry or the public about what is going on with the failed “Star Rating System” for vehicle security systems.
Given this, I have just sent out the following email to Greg Watts “Executive Officer” of the NZSA and CC’d other members of the NZSA for good measure.
Please be aware that this email is going out to all members of the NZSA and will be posted on my website. The reason I feel forced to do this is because you have chosen to evade responding to my previous email questioning what is happening with the “Star rating system” for car alarms and immobilisers. On top of that I believe that my customers, the general public and vehicle security retailers have a right to know what is happening.
Rather then point out the failing of the NZSA under your helm I will simply refer to this blog post and email which covers the main details: https://vehiclesecurity.co.nz/blog/a-legacy-of-failure
It is disappointing that other then a letter which you have sent out, (see attached) that informs me that the NZSA now intends to stop using the vehicle security industry as a source of revenue, along with a suggestion I should join the MTA, very little seems to have been done!
I believe that the NZSA needs to front up and respond to the following questions:
1: What is happening to the NZSA “star rating system”? Is it being handed over to the MTA or is it officially null and void as of the 1st of April?
2: What has the NZSA done to keep the public informed about changes to the “star rating system”?
3: Has the NZSA been in contact with the Insurance council of New Zealand to advise of any changes to the “star rating system”?
4: Why has the NZSA failed to to mention what is happening to the “star rating system” on its website?
Personally I would encourage all NZSA members to consider what the NZSA actually offers them before renewing membership.
Finally I would like to say farewell to the NZSA and have now made a video dedicated to the failing of the NZSA in improving vehicle security standards.
Professionalising the Security Industry – Yeah Right!
P.S. Am I in the running for NZSA member of the year given my dedication to improving NZSA standards?
Here is the video dedicated to the NZSA:
My membership has now gone up in flames 😈
