Existing economic models are changing rapidly and new technologies and regulation will create both risks and opportunities. This will have an impact on the security and fire safety industry. Euralarm has existed for almost 50 years, and continues to play an important role in driving new regulations and standardization to support quality and an open market approach. A good relationship with the local organizations and policy makers in the countries and Europe are part of this process.

In this changing environment Euralarm works proactive on awareness, education and regulation. The European association offers a platform for different stakeholders from the industry to work together on standardization, innovation and market development. ‘’We want to ensure that the industry will continue to offer best in class professional products, systems and services which are secure, reliable and accessible for all European people and businesses’’, according to the new General Director. “We are well aware of the responsibility we have as an industry to deliver products, systems and services which do their job on the moment we count on them.”
