Euralarm is delighted to invite you to the virtual debate 'On the road to the EU Recovery' on 18 November 2020, 14:00 - 15:30 CET.


In the light of the ongoing German Presidency of the Council of the EU and the crucial for the future of the European industry discussions about the Recovery Fund, we would like to gather policymakers and industry to discuss the role of the fire safety and security industry.

The recent publication of the Renovation Wave Strategy is a unique opportunity to introduce a holistic approach towards fire safety and security when renovating buildings. With around 250 million homes across the EU that need energy renovation, now more than ever, it is time for the EU to invest in renovating homes, offices, schools and other private and public buildings.

Following the Euralarm General Assembly on October 29, 2020, an industry webinar has been organised that will run from 16:00 - 16:50 (CET). We are excited to invite you to this online Event. The webinar is intended to look at the key regulations and standards that affect gaseous extinguishing systems in Europe and to distinguish between approved gaseous fire extinguishing systems and approved components, which is the subject of the recent Euralarm document titled, Guidance on Gaseous Systems : approved systems versus approved components. 

Background
Gaseous fire extinguishing systems are a very effective way to protect critical hazards and high value assets, when it is important to have no collateral damage caused by the extinguishant or residues. But how should the efficiency and reliability of a gaseous fire extinguishing system be assessed? And what is the role and the influence of the various standards, regulations and approvals that are used to validate the efficacy of the systems. This Event will make you aware of the major differences between voluntary and mandatory standards quality marks and will help you to make a decisions based on clear and balanced information.

Attendees should register for the event in advance here. Prior to the event a separate link to the webinar will be sent to you.  In case one or more of your colleagues would be interested in joining us, please do not hesitate to forward them the invitation.

A correct performance of a gaseous fire extinguishing system is essential not only to quickly extinguish a fire but also to protect human life. It is important to understand how to assess the efficiency and reliability of a gaseous fire extinguishing system. To help any person involved in the choice of a system make a decision based on clear and balanced information, the Extinguishing Section has released the Guidance on Gaseous Systems: approved system versus approved components

On October 8, 2020 Mr. Lance Rütimann, chair of the Euralarm Fire Section presented a paper on the Impact of the Construction Products Regulation on Standardisation in the active Fire Safety industry. The presentation was held during an Informal meeting of the Working Party Technical Harmonisation (Construction Products) of the German EU Council Presidency - Construction Products Regulation. The paper can be downloaded from our website.

For many years EN 50131-1 has been the basis for quality standards for security and hold-up systems and as new technologies and applications are brought to market the regulation needs to be updated to meet the new requirements. At this moment the EN 50131-1 is open for revision and Euralarm is working with its members and other stakeholders from the security industry to include these new technologies into the standard. It will ensure that going forwards the EN 50131-1 will stay relevant for end-users, alarm response and insurance companies and with that also for our industry.

In order to get all service providers answering to the same quality requirements, the Services Section convinced standardisation organisations to start working on a European remote services norm for fire safety and security. The first draft of the remote services standard prEN50710 was sent out for voting and commenting. With clear confirmation from countries that they want the remote service norm, even from those countries that voted negatively, the preparation of the final draft has now begun. The standard is expected to be released in the first quarter of 2022.

The initiative of the Services Section resulted in the start of a new working group within the Joint Technical Committee 4 under the umbrella of CEN CENELEC. The scope of JTC 4 WG1 is to develop and maintain a standard for requirements for the provision of secure remote services for fire safety and security systems.
