New CEN-CENELEC HECTOS Workshop Agreement on the Design Certification Systems and Schemes in the field of Physical Security Products

The overall goal of the workshop agreement is to provide a guideline document on how to design certification systems and schemes in the field of physical security products. Nowadays, protection of people, property and infrastructure has become a real challenge for society, and a wide range of products and applications are being used by security practitioners in Europe.

The lack of harmonisation for security products as well as tests, evaluations and certification procedures that are mutually recognised by different Member States makes it difficult for manufacturers to sell their products in several European countries.

The description of a generic scheme framework to accommodate needs to operate in both regulated and unregulated environments as well as with products of different maturity and market sizes, was envisaged as a result of the CEN-CENELEC workshop in order to transfer research results combined with stakeholder needs into standardisation.

CEN-CENELEC Workshop HECTOS was proposed based on the scope, objectives and the outcomes of the HECTOS project, which was funded by the EC FP7 security research programme, and in which Euralarm had an advisory role.

The Technical Secretariat of CEN-CENELEC Workshop HECTOS is held by DIN - Deutsches Institut für Normung.
