With Euralarm’s help Romanian companies plead for better national regulation

In autumn 2016, Euralarm’s Romanian association Member ARTS requested help from Euralarm Members in order to overcome an issue raised by a new local regulation. The national standard issued in 2015 considerably reduced the possibility for electronic fire safety products manufacturers to sell their certificated products and to use them in projects.

The norm for the design of fire detection installations required performances and limitations for the fire control panels (FCP) exceeding those applying to manufacturers elsewhere in Europe. Euralarm Delegates from France, Germany and United Kingdom provided their own national benchmarking as evidence of the new Romanian standard being unbalanced in comparison to conditions existing in other parts of the European market.  As an effect, the standard was modified last year and should go for voting under its revised form in the coming months.
