EFSG, an association of European certification bodies operating in the fire and security sectors, and Euralarm’s Task Force EFSG have been working closely together on a common application form for EFSG certification. The form was published recently and can be used for making an application for multiple certifications.
Following a decision of its Board, Euralarm has welcomed ExxFire as new member. The company will join the Extinguishing Section of Euralarm which activities cover automatic extinguishing systems using gas, water, foam, powder and aerosols, oxygen reduction systems, portable equipment and other manual means of fire-fighting as well as fire-fighting agents used in either fixed automatic systems or in portable equipment.
Euralarm and the US Fire Suppression System Association (FSSA) have signed a Memorandum of Cooperation. The reciprocal cooperation will focus on education, research, service, and other related activities in the domain of fire safety.

Although the Directive is not currently applicable to products within the professional alarm industry, Euralarm realises that there is a possibility for future delegated acts under Article 5(4) and Article 15, in areas which may affect such products in the future.
The Extinguishing Section of Euralarm has published a new guidance document. This latest document focuses on the maintenance of condensed aerosol fire extinguishing systems/equipment controlled by electronic detection systems.
The Extinguishing Section of Euralarm has published an updated version of the guidance document on the important aspects relating to the periodic inspection of containers used in fixed gaseous fire extinguishing systems.
