Bosch guarantees performance with Independent Testing

Bosch Security Systems is one of the first companies to seek tests by independent accredited laboratories based on new European EN 50131 standards for intrusion alarm products.

The new standards have been introduced by CENELEC (European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization) to meet growing demands for EN compliant products from users and installers of security systems. The European standards will gradually replace existing national standards within Europe and will also extend to European countries that currently do not have an established standard of their own. The aim of the new EN standards is to guarantee a consistently high level of performance for electronic security systems throughout Europe.

Commenting on the independent testing, Darren Cox, Intrusion Product Manager for Bosch Security Systems, said: “For these new standards to gain credibility and become widely accepted throughout the industry, it is essential for products to be tested by independent laboratories and not by the manufacturers themselves. A self-declaration of compliance to EN 50131 provides absolutely no guarantee of product quality or product features. For this reason, many national laboratories such as CNPP (Centre Nationale de Prevention et de Protection) in France, VdS in Germany and ANPI in Belgium have already initiated product testing based on the available EN standards and Technical Specifications. “
