The wide variety of quality marks for fire detection products and security and intrusion systems in the different European states makes it complicated to certify these products for export to Europe, increasing the number of tests and certificates necessary for acceptance in in the different EC countries.
In contrast, the CertAlarm mark is a unique European quality mark based on third-party, one-stop testing and certification to EN 54, EN 12094, EN 14604 fire standards and EN 5013X security standards. The CertAlarm mark also groups together all additional requirements the different EC countries may have. CertAlarm is the only European certification scheme which has been endorsed by the European co-operation for Accreditation (EA) according to system 5. This positions CertAlarm as a true EU-wide quality mark helping clients to demonstrate compliance wherever they plan to sell their product in Europe. As CertAlarm certification process is based on EN standards, it is also accepted in some Middle East countries.
