The European Commission has released an inception impact assessment on the proposal for an EU initiative establishing a harmonised certification scheme for alarm systems components. Industry stakeholders and representative bodies can provide the European Commission with an answer to this consultation. Euralarm is part of a group of representative bodies which has been closely involved with the Commission in providing background input into this legislative proposal.
The impact assessment follows up on a longstanding proposal by Euralarm for a single market approach to testing, auditing and certification in the security industry as outlined in Euralarm’s Manifesto and which was recently featured in a campaign towards EU Institutions. Trade barriers caused by the absence of a one stop testing scheme are harmful to the competitiveness of European manufacturers of security systems. The lack of a single market reduces economies of scale and, as a result, competitiveness in a global market.
Taking part in the EU consultation on harmonised certification for alarm systems is a key result on representation done by Euralarm over the past years. Euralarm’s Security Section, under the lead of Dave Wilkinson as Chairman of the Section, will formulate a Euralarm response to the EU Commission. Following that an approved recommendation will be distributed to all members of the association for their own use.
