The strategy for the future of security standards

Zug, Switzerland

A website / learning platform was introduced during the event which presents a good overview of the standardisation world.

In the frame of the World Standard day and the 25th anniversary of the European single market, Euralarm recently joined the conference “Standards meet the future’’, organised by CEN/CENELEC, ETSI, EFTA and the European commission.

At the event, different panels reviewed the history and future of standardisation and the impact it has on the single market and how standards take trade barriers away between countries in Europe. In the introduction it was highlighted that a great deal of good standardisation work has been done with a positive impact on businesses and consumers. The European mobile network, a simplified European banking system and cross country sales are just examples of what the EU has achieved and where standards played a key role in that achievement.

The security industry has also taken steps forward in the field of European Standards. However, there is still work to be done. For example, the challenges with regulations such as the cyber security act and CPR need to be solved. This also highlights the importance for Euralarm to be actively involved with the process of making new regulations. Making a good standard takes time and needs input from all stakeholders, including SME’s and consumers. Since technology and market environment are rapidly changing, it has to be ensured that the standards stay in sync with these market developments. As a focal point of many of these developments Euralarm and its members will continue to contribute to the standardisation process.

Standardisation should also generate more public awareness as well within our education system and within the public sector so that people understand the impact that standards have on their day to day work and life. In order to achieve this a website / learning platform was introduced during the event which presents a good overview of the standardisation world.
