PRESS RELEASES

Brussels, January 15, 2017 - The 2017 Maltese Presidency of the Council of the European Union released this month its priorities, including Security and the Single Market. Both are high on Euralarm’s agenda.

Cutting-edge and freshly published research on fire safety was presented during a joint conference of EUSAS and Euralarm, the leading European trade and research associations in the sector. R&D’s potential impact on current and future standardisation work was a point of focus for the event.

Worldwide, touristic travel is on the rise. International tourism actually dwarfs any other type of leisure business in terms of growth and one of the global regions benefitting the most from this trend is Europe: the world’s first tourism destination.

Zug, Switzerland, 31 January 2017 – The conference on Research into fire technologies shaping future standards, organised by Euralarm and EUSAS, takes place in Berlin on Tuesday 7 and Wednesday 8 February 2017. Those who are interested in participating in the conference can download a leaflet from the Euralarm and EUSAS websites and register directly. 

Zug, Switzerland, December 19th, 2016 - Euralarm published today a new white paper on outsourcing the maintenance of fire safety security systems, specifically intended for building owners and managers. The purpose of the white paper is to bring awareness of the risks of outsourcing maintenance and to give guidelines on how to avoid or minimise these risks. 

Brussels, December 22nd, 2016 – Euralarm, Europe’s trade association representing the European electronic fire safety and security Industry, is stepping up its involvement in the Joint Initiative on Standardisation to solve current fire and security issues such as the publication of standards under the Construction Products Regulation, and prepare for the future.

The next Euralarm Symposium will be organised in London on May 8th, 2017. The symposium will focus on the future of fire and security services across Europe and will present ways of turning this future into business opportunities. 

Zug, Switzerland, October 2016 – Euralarm and EUSAS will be organising a European conference on research into fire technologies that will shape the future standards. The conference will take place in Berlin on Tuesday 7 and Wednesday 8 February 2017. The conference is aimed at representatives of the fire industry, test institutes, standard developers, practitioners and scientists, who are interested in fire protection engineering especially in private homes and/or in the EUSAS work in context of fire detection and system technologies. 

The pre-legislative impact assessment is the result of several years of collective work of Euralarm’s network of Members together with the EU Commission. Euralarm is now hoping for a workable harmonised solution to simplify certification across Europe for security components. This solution could take the form of a legislative proposal to be presented by the EU Commission in the first half of 2017.

Euralarm published today a white paper presenting the views of the European electronic fire safety and security industry on the topic of smart cities. In a few pages, the document demonstrates the need for safety and security to be better integrated into rankings, performance indicators and standards for smart cities. 

Euralarm is collectively challenging the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) over the delay in publishing revised standards to meet the essential requirements of the Radio Equipment Directive (RED), which took effect this June. It has also brought the issue to the European Commission.

The approval of new standard prEN 16763 has officially been announced by CEN/CENELEC today, following on overwhelmingly positive votes cast by national standardisation bodies. Euralarm welcomes the adoption of a European standard which it has long supported and its Members now prepare for the next stages in the diffusion of the standard.
