(Published by Alan Eder, Lider)
 
An article about FSEU event “The Killing Fumes in Building Fires. Why Should Smoke Toxicity from Building Materials be Tested?” was published on the Croatian magazine Lider.
Here is a summary in English:

“EU has no regulation concerning the protection from toxic smoke”

A roundtable aiming to raise awareness on the problem of toxic smoke from fires in residential and commercial buildings was held at the European Parliament.  In Europe there is no regulation banning the use of building materials that produce toxic fumes when burning, while such legislation in other countries does exist, was said at the round table. As security increase, fewer people are killed in fires by fire, while more die from toxic smoke and protection in this segment has not been regulated as it should be, consider Fire Safe Europe.”
