Euralarm’s “year of change” outlined in Annual Report 2018-2019

Euralarm has released its Annual Report for 2018-2019. The period is described as “a year of change” for the organisation. With a new president, Board, general director and section leaders in place and the final integration of the Extinguishing Section in the overall structure, the association is now “ready to move forwards” into the future. 

The Annual Report covers the period between the General Assemblies of the association and follows the structure of Euralarm, with every section and Technical Committee of the association summarising their activities over the previous year and, where appropriate, providing forecasts and details of plans for the future.

A running theme of the document is Euralarm’s work on building strategic alliances. Throughout the Annual Report, the activities of the Euralarm sections underline the importance and necessity of co-operation in the fire safety and security business. Such co-operation ensures that Euralarm’s voice is heard in Brussels both on the political and the standardisation side of the equation.

New technologies, changes in the macroeconomic environment, the new EU Parliament and the reshaping of the international landscape will afford Euralarm both challenges and opportunities. Set against this background, it’s important for Euralarm to generate far-reaching acknowledgement of what it does among European politicians and policy-makers and to keep these and other relevant stakeholders involved in the industry.

Across 2018-2019, there has been an ongoing growth in membership for Euralarm with Eaton Electrical Products and Halma plc joining as new members of the Fire Section. This continuous growth, in line with the trend of the previous years, is “a sign of trust” in Euralarm, its organisation, vision and strategy, all of which are detailed in the Annual Report.

Euralarm publishes Annual Report 2017-2018

Euralarm has issued its Annual Report for 2017-2018. Publication of the report coincides with the end of the current Euralarm Board’s three-year mandate. That being so, beyond the usual account of the past year’s activities, the document also offers a review of the work achieved during that three-year period, and particularly so in terms of “invigorating the Euralarm community”.

One of the highlights of the past year was the opening of the new Extinguishing Section of Euralarm and the de facto expansion of the representation of Euralarm to the whole field of active fire protection. Organised as an umbrella association, Euralarm already comprises an electronic Fire Alarm Section, as well as a Section for Electronic Security and another for services related to both Fire Safety and Security.

The report follows the structure of Euralarm, with every Section and Technical Committee of the association summarising their activities over the previous year and, where appropriate, providing forecasts and plans for the future.

A running theme of the report is Euralarm’s work on building strategic alliances. There are short interviews with stakeholders, industry leaders and other prominent partners in the fire safety and security business sector throughout the Annual Report. A major development in that area is a new co-operation agreement with CEN, the European standardisation platform.

Over the 2017-2018 period covered by the report, running between the General Assemblies of the association usually taking place in May or June, Euralarm can also testify to an ongoing growth in membership with Teletek as a new Member in the Fire Section hailing from Bulgaria and the dynamic German association BHE extending its membership from the Services Section to the Fire and Security Section. This continuous growth, in line with the trend of previous years, is said to be “a sign of trust” in Euralarm, its organisation, vision and strategy.

In a concluding section of the document, Euralarm’s outgoing President Enzo Peduzzi looks back on the three years of his mandate and how the association has been set on course for successful future development.
