Euralarm involved in better standardisation of Monitoring and Alarm Receiving Centres

Euralarm have been involved over the past 3 years in the revision of the standard EN 50518 for Monitoring and Alarm Receiving Centres. The existing version is split into three parts and is limited to alarms from intruder and hold up systems. 

A new version, which will shortly be sent out to National standards committees for voting, is now a single standard covering other messages received from one or more of a range of safety and security alarm systems such as fire detection and fire alarm systems, fixed firefighting systems, intrusion and hold-up alarm systems, access control systems, video surveillance systems, social alarms systems and combinations of such systems.

Euralarm Members hope to see a positive vote for the new version of the standard and expect it to be published later in 2017.
