Euralarm supports the objectives of the European Single Market with removal of trade barriers for products and services. Since 1970, our association has worked hard to represent the interests of the electronic fire safety industry in the areas of standardisation development and legislation. From the perspective of Euralarm, it is of grave concern that developments stemming from the strict implementation of the Construction Products Regulation are threatening the ability of our members to provide reliable active fire safety solutions to the European market. Although the impact has not been felt by the market yet, the path outlined at this time will inevitably lead to negative consequences. This briefing describes the impact of the Construction Products Regulation on standardisation in the active fire safety industry
