“Fire Safety is a common responsibility!
Defining rules on CPR is not sufficient per se.
The European cable industry is fully aware and has adopted a three-fold approach:
- Cooperating with Notified Bodies to improve testing methods;
- Raising electrical professionals’ awareness through a dedicated online campaign cpr.europacable.eu ; and
- Considering a program to support Market Surveillance Authorities in dealing with non-compliant cables.”
This is the message Christophe Richon, Chair of the Europacable CPR Working Group conveyed at both the Building Day conference and the the Electrical Safety and Energy Transition conference held in Brussels on 19 and 20 November within the framework of the first ever European Fire Safety Week.
