Euralarm study on False Alarms published

Euralarm, the European association representing the electronic fire and security Industry, has carried out a European study on false alarms. It has been published as a paperback by the academic ediotr Eric Schmidt Verlag and is also avaialable on Amazon.

The 50th General Assembly of Euralarm, the European association representing the fire safety and security Industry, closed today. As a new Board and Managing Director were introduced, Delegates from national associations and blue-chip companies acknowledged that the Industry is more unified, better integrated into European decision-making processes.

In 5 years, the Euralarm Symposium has established itself as a strategic event on innovation and developments of regulatory nature impacting one of the most successful Industries in Europe: electronic security and fire safety.

Euralarm has released today its Annual Report. The publication of the report coincides with the end of the Euralarm Board’s three-year mandate and therefore, beyond the usual account of the past year’s activities, it also offers a review of the work achieved during that three-year period, particularly in terms of invigorating the Euralarm community.

Today, the European Parliament (LIBE Committee) and the Council (COREPER) reached a political compromise on the Commission's proposal to strengthen the mandate of the eu-LISA, the EU Agency for the operational management of large scale IT systems for migration, security and border management. 

The upgrade, proposed by the Commission in June 2017, will enable eu-LISA to roll-out the technical solutions to achieve the full interoperability of EU information systems for migration, security and border management.

Euralarm joined Malte Lohan, the newly appointed Director General at Orgalime for an hour-long chat to discuss what this crucial partner for our association that is Orgalime does right now to support our Industry's position in Brussels.

This is a extract of the latest edition of ALARMA Magazine, which sat together with Lance Rütimann, the man behind the Euralarm Symposium 2018. The event will take place in Bucharest on June 4th, in conjunction with Euralarm Member ARTS’ annual event. Mr. Rütimann is Senior Manager Industry Affairs for Siemens Building Technologies Division and the Chairman of a Euralarm body dealing with European influence: Euralarm’s Advocacy Committee.

In the course of five years, the Euralarm Symposium has established itself as the most important event on significant market developments of innovative, legislative, regulatory and standardisation nature impacting one of the most successful Industries in Europe: electronic security and fire safety. The speakers at the Euralarm Symposium 2018 have now been announced, with only a few additions still to be confirmed.
