Brussels| 16 October 2017

The European Commission, with the support of the Estonian presidency of the Council, held the first meeting of the Fire Information Exchange Platform (FIEP) in Brussels on October 16. 25 Member States and 25 associations came to discuss key challenges for fire safety in buildings. The Ministry of Interior of the Republic of Slovakia, a pioneer of collaboration between member states on this topic, presented the conclusions of a 2016 roundtable.

Fire Safe Europe (FSEU) gave a presentation on regulatory challenges regarding fire safety in buildings and on an FSEU study on fire safety in high rise buildings which compares legislation in different Member States and highlights why high rise is a key priority. Both presentations can be downloaded on the FSEU website.

Concluding the meeting, the European Commission identified five main work streams for the new platform going forward:

  • Data
  • Fire prevention
  • Lessons learned
  • New products
