Widely considered to be one of the most boring topics on earth – it is also widely acknowledged to be one of the critical factors in the successful deployment of fire protection and prevention to secure the safely of people at home, at work and at play. In this presentation Peter Massingberd-Mundy from Xtralis Honeywell will attempt to provide some insight into how the legal framework for the writing of standards in Europe has evolved and why there is a growing list of candidate Harmonised standards which have not been deemed suitable for citation in the EUOJ to underpin the CE marking of products.
As the new chairman of TC72, the presentation will focus on the EN54 series of standards which fall under the on the Construction Product Regulations (CPR). Examples of current work and some of the technical issues being addressed by TC72 will be included, along with latest news on how the EN54 series is shaping up.
