Alarm Standard Deferred

by msecadm4921

An industry statement has deferred until further notice the adoption by the security industry of BS EN 50131-1:2006.

The statement is supported by the British Security Industry Association (BSIA), the Insurers’ Property Crime Research Group (IPCres), the National Security Inspectorate (NSI) and the Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board (SSAIB). The Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) and ACPO Scotland have approved the statement.

BSIA Technical Director, Alex Carmichael, says: "The introduction of new European Standards for intruder alarms has proved to be a continuing challenge for the industry. There have been a number of delays in the development of other draft European standards in the family of EN 50131-1, and so a decision to delay the adoption of the standards has been made. This should ensure stability for the industry and its customers until such a time as the standards have been developed further and can be formally adopted."

The full industry statement is available on the BSIA website:
