UK: The Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure (PSTI) Bill


The Bill mandates that security requirements be complied with in relation to all consumer connectable products, though the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport will have the ability to designate exceptions where appropriate in the future.

A consumer connectable product is an internet-connectable or network-connectable product. The government has stated that the security requirements will apply in relation to products including:

  • smartphones

  • connected cameras, TVs and speakers

  • connected children’s toys and baby monitors

  • connected safety-relevant products such as smoke detectors and door locks

  • Internet of Things base stations and hubs to which multiple devices connect

  • wearable connected fitness trackers

  • outdoor leisure products, such as handheld connected GPS devices that are not wearables

  • connected home automation and alarm systems

  • connected appliances, such as washing machines and fridges

  • smart home assistants
