The General Assemblies of CEN and CENELEC have overwhelmingly agreed to revise the membership arrangements in their statutes. With a new category of full membership overcoming the UK’s departure from the EU, the compatibility of standards across Europe is safeguarded. Euralarm welcomes the new agreement as it will support access for businesses to the European market.
Euralarm recently released a Position Paper on the EC proposal for a Regulation on Artificial Intelligence. Following the release of the Position Paper Euralarm spoke to Gabriele Mazzini, lawyer of DG Connect and in the lead for the proposal.
The European Commission Directorate General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG GROW) has tasked a consortium composed of EY and MENON with the performance of a Study on the functions and effects of European standards and standardisation in EU and EFTA Member States.
Euralarm has released its Annual Report 2020-2021. The report follows the structure of Euralarm, every section and committee of the association summarising their activities over the previous year and, where appropriate, providing forecasts and plans for the future.
During the recent common session with representatives of all sections, Euralarm's technical manager Benoît Stockbroeckx presented the impact of the revision of EN 50130-4 on CE marking as well as on compliance testing for functionality of alarm components.
