BSIA and Euralarm remain committed to working together

30 October 2017

With Article 50 officially being triggered on 29th March, the future of the United Kingdom is a somewhat uncertain one. As the UK’s Brexit negotiations begin to gather pace, with the Prime Minister looking to get the best ‘deal’ for the country, questions have been raised regarding the effects that the result of the EU referendum will have on standards and exporting within the security Industry. 

However, Euralarm and the BSIA remain committed to work together on European standardisation.

The BSIA holds several key positions in Euralarm and remains a lead contributor to the work of the organisation. Commenting on how Britain’s impending exit from the EU may affect the standards landscape, Dave Wilkinson, Technical Director at the BSIA, explained that “the BSIA and BSI share a common ‘current’ view that it is business as usual for now, until the full extent of new trade agreements are realised,” adding that: “Euralarm continues to be a key strategic partner to our influence in Europe and is likely to remain the case, as exiting the EU doesn’t impact on our membership of the trade body.”
