Unified interpretations for better solutions
If you want to receive updates on our guidelines, subscribe to our newsletter
The European fire protection associations have decided to produce common guidelines in order to achieve similar interpretation in the European countries and to give example of acceptable solutions, concepts and models. The guidelines reflect best practice developed by the countries of CFPA Europe. The CFPA E has the aim to facilitate and support fire and natural hazards protection and security work in the European countries, but where the guidelines and the national requirement conflict, national requirement must apply.
