Euralarm Symposium 2018
The next Euralarm Symposium will be in Bucharest's, Hilton Athenee Hotel, on June 4th, 2018. The Symposium will focus on the impact of the digitisation and regulatory landscapes across Europe and will present ways of turning this future into business opportunities.
The common thread of this year's Symposium will be reviewing what is happening in both the digitisation and regulatory landscapes, and how they will impact our industry. In 2018, we will continue to give this more meaning by looking at the shift in skill sets, data security requirements and construction product regulation.
Qualifying to compete: In today’s market - and even more since the tragic Grenfell Tower fire in 2017 - one has to qualify to compete. The EN 16763 Services Standard - one of the first to focus on the tertiary sector - was only a stepping stone. National players must now begin to outline training programs to support continuous development of skills, experience and knowledge as well as establish qualification schemes that are accepted ‘across Europe’.
Keeping Security secure: In the context of the EU General Data Protection Regulation as of May 2018, our industry is called to establish compliance with the GDPR. Further, the ever evolving cybersecurity risks for the fire safety and security industry demand that additional measures are defined and implemented to protect its products, solutions and services.
Regulating Construction Products: Euralarm’s Construction Product Regulation Task Force has developed a common understanding on the impact of the CPR on our fire safety industry today considering also that Technical Committees CEN/TC 72 and 191 are facing.
There will be adequate time for discussions, networking and visiting the mini-exhibition before, during and following the Symposium itself. This not to miss symposium is aimed at fire and security professionals, including installers, system integrators, manufacturers, end users, facility or property managers, certification bodies and other interested groups.
