Standards for products and services are at the heart of success of the fire safety industry. Euralarm’ members need a fast and flexible standards-setting system because it is not only the best way to serve the interests of customers, the industry and society but also is a basic requirement for a safe and secure society. Our standardisation system helps us to continue to deliver the highest levels of safety and security to citizens. However, for the competitiveness of the electronic fire safety industry, the impact of the CPR on standardisation has according to our members unfortunately not met our expectations. This industry as well as many others depend on standardised product performance requirements and standardised behaviour, which is at odds with the interpretation of the CPR following the European Court of Justice judgement on the James Elliot case.

Euralarm has informed the members of the European Parliament's Committee on Internal Market and Consumer Protection (IMCO) on its response on the Evaluation of the Construction Products Regulation (CPR). In our representative role for the electronic fire safety industry we welcome the opportunity to provide comments for consideration on the Commission Staff Working Document – Evaluation of Regulation (EU) No 305/2011.

Euralarm strongly supports the free movement of products within the EU and therefore agrees on the need for EU legislation on construction products. We recognize the positive impact of the CPR on cross-border opportunities and trade and share with the EC the conclusion that a revision and a simplification of the CPR is needed. However, we disagree on the Commission’s evaluation of the standardisation system.

For several decades, Euralarm has been heavily involved in European standardisation. Our members have together more than 100 experts on CEN Technical Committees writing candidate harmonized standards under the CPR. Euralarm also gained the official status of CEN Partner.

Unlike the Commission concludes, the issue is NOT with the production of standards but with the requirements set up by the Commission for the harmonisation of standards under the CPR.
