Gain expertise on markets and opportunities

Companies joining Euralarm get a unique insight into what is happening on other European markets and the opportunities that they might offer. They not only tap into the political expertise and understanding of the EU policy but can also make personal connections with technical and political experts and potential business partners.

Being a member of Euralarm enables companies and associations to gain expertise on standardisation. Members have their voice heard in Brussels and can support and direct standardisation and legislative processes.

Fire Section

The Fire section monitors and analyses the developments and reviews what the impact of the technologies can be. This not only will help members to better understand the topics and their impact but also acts as a guidance on prioritizing our actions and our work regarding standardization and certification.

Standardization has been and will be an essential platform for the fire industry. Therefore, the section closely monitors the standardization and regulation processes in Europe and contributes to a practical balance between regulatory and voluntary requirements while supporting the process for a more agile approach towards standardization. This cannot be done without the valuable partnerships with standardization organizations, associations, and other stakeholders.

Services Section

While maintaining focus on established fire and security services, the Euralarm Services Section aims at safeguarding new and innovative services. The Services Section meetings gathers experts presenting on actual topics such as the standardisation landscape on fire and security services. The section liaises towards key standardisation groups and closely follows technological developments to guide regulation and standardisation. Concerning standards, the section continues informing members of changes and advocacy activities at both national and EU level.
