BSIA expands its membership of Euralarm

The BSIA has expanded its membership of Euralarm into its Services Section. This section provides a direct link to all services associated with installation, maintenance, and monitoring of security and fire systems across Europe and internationally.

The BSIA was already an active member of the Euralarm Security Section, representing the interests of manufacturers in regulatory and standardisation matters. They also represent the views of their members in their horizontal compliance, cyber security and marketing task groups.
Being a member of Euralarm and the Services Section allows BSIA to ‘participate actively and influence the work’ of Euralarm for European and International standards impacting intruder & hold-up alarms, Access Control, Video Surveillance, fire alarm and other associated sectors.
Through its membership BSIA has a direct input into Euralarm’s position on matters connected with the European Union. E.g., directives and regulation, such as cyber security, data privacy, artificial intelligence etc.
Other benefits are the direct input into Euralarm’s discussions with the CENELEC contact management centre (those who set the rules for standards development), the development of position papers on topics associated with the section’s work, ‘direct influence’ on the development and implementation of Euralarm’s strategy for the section and an opportunity to share knowledge and present the work of BSIA to other national trade associations, members and invited guests of Euralarm.
The expanded membership gives BSIA an opportunity to keep pace with work associated with European security services e.g., standards, qualification, training and a further ‘vote’ for BSIA in Euralarm’s General Assembly. This also provides an opportunity for the BSIA members to directly engage in Euralarm.
