Many businesses will be aware that fire and safety legislation that applies to the UK in uniform across the EU. Following the vote for the UK to leave the EU it is important to note that there will not be a change to legislation or trading arrangements for at least two years. We will not know how significant the decision to leave the EU will be until we have a clearer idea of the terms the UK negotiates for its continued relationship with the EU.
Our Product and Service standards are EN based and these will continue to be the framework for our businesses. The Construction Products Regulations will continue to be the overarching piece of legislation for the placing of our products into the UK market and it is therefore important that we stay full engaged within the processes at CEN and CENLEC. As a footnote the FIA and BSIA will host Euralarm in London for their 2017 GA and we look forward to welcoming Fire and Security industry guests from across Europe.
