ICA webinar:

CPTED ISO Standard

(26 March 2021)


“The views expressed in this webinar belong to our guest speakers and do not necessarily reflect the position of the ICA.”


The International CPTED Association proudly presents its Global Webinar to mark the launch of the first-ever ISO Standard (ISO 22341:2021) on CPTED as a benchmark and guidance to CPTED practitioners across the world.

The launch of this standard at the end of January this year marked the culmination of years of hard work, theory, research, and practice. The ICA Standardization committee contributed to realization of this document. In this upcoming webinar three members of our Standardization Committee discussed their contributions, criticisms and analytical insights into the document. They will also share how CPTED practitioners should use this new standard.

    Topics included:

      • Need for standard
      • System of ISO standard development
      • Structure of the standard and relevance to CPTED practitioners
      • Involvement in the standard
      • Insights into ISO standard
      • Scope for further developments

      Who should watch: CPTED professionals, safety and crime prevention specialists, public officials, safety and security consultants, police officers, academics, students, researchers, policy makers, urban development experts, criminologists, sociologists, social engineers, decision-makers, architects, urban planners & designers, and others.
