The ongoing negotiations between the European Parliament and the Council to set up an EU cybersecurity certification framework will have profound implications for the future of Europe’s industrial system, European companies being the first impacted by the final design of the framework.

This why Euralarm co-signed with 10 other trade associations an open letter to European Institutions currently engaged in a ‘trialogue’ on the future European Cybersecurity Act. The letter opposes various aspect of the legislation currently in preparation introduced by either the European Commission, Parliament or EU Council.
The four points letter supports Industry involvement in the development of certification schemes to be developed under the legislative framework, and pleas for a framework that does not make certification schemes mandatory but should allow for self-assessment where appropriate. Finally, the letter calls European legislators to take into account interoperability with existing international agreements, regulations and standards.
