EURALARM SYMPOSIUM 2018 TOPICS ANNOUNCED

Euralarm Symposium 2018 Topics
On June 4th 2018, the newest edition of the Euralarm Symposium will take place in Bucharest. The conference, over the last five years, has established itself as an important event on market developments of legislation, innovation, regulation and standardisation impacting the electronic security and fire safety industry. 
 
The annual event aims to provide business relevance and is organised by Euralarm, the industry’s main European representative body and trade association.
 
Although the Euralarm Symposium is aimed at Euralarm members - companies within the industry and national associations across Europe - it is set to attract a large crowd in June 2018. Notably, European stakeholders, both from institutions and advocacy groups are expected to join the conference.
 
Topics of the 2018 Euralarm Symposium have been chosen for their appeal to a wide audience. The common thread will be the changing business environment and how it can be addressed to offset the challenges that globalisation and technological developments have set for the industry.
 
Qualifying to compete: The EN 16763 Services Standard, one of the first to focus on the tertiary sector, was only a stepping stone. National players must now set out to outline how skills, experience and knowledge are verified and establishing qualifications that are valid ‘across Europe’.
 
Keeping security secure: In the context of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as of May 2018 along with ever evolving cyber security risks, the fire safety and security industry must define and implement measures to protect its products and solutions. Measures for IT infrastructures essential to the Industry must be implemented while keeping European citizens secure.
 
Regulating construction products: Euralarm’s CPR Task Force is studying the influence of the CPR on the harmonized standards for fire safety. The objective is to develop a common understanding of how the regulation impacts the market today and how to deal with the problems that Technical Committees such as CEN/TC 72 and 191 are facing.
