Viking will now benefit from Euralarm’s services in terms of representation towards European institutions and standardisation organisations. This includes the monitoring of legislative and standardisation issues relevant to the industry. Viking will have access to the extended network of national associations and major companies in the electronic fire safety and security sectors, which form Euralarm’s members. The new membership will create opportunities for both sides, as it also strengthens the association.
By its membership of Euralarm Viking taps into the association’s political expertise and understanding of how EU policy is impacting the industry and its markets. It also enables Viking to make personal connections with technical and political experts and gain expertise on standardisation. Members like Viking have their voice heard in Brussels and can support and direct standardisation and legislative processes.
