On September 6th, 2017, the first “International VdS Fire Safety and Security Forum” took place in China. The forum was organised and directed around the setting of “China Fire Expo” in Beijing, and focused primarily on topics related to fire safety and security, and first and foremost with decision-makers and disseminators from industry, politics, administration and science.
In his opening address VdS CEO Thomas Urban emphasised the extremely positive development that VdS has seen and taken note of in the Chinese market over the last 10 years. Thus VdS is now widely accepted by many representatives of the Chinese administration and is even required as a safety and security standard in some public tenders. The “International VdS Fire Safety and Security Forum” also provided an excellent platform for informing interested enterprises about the opportunities to enter the Chinese market and to promote dialogue with Chinese policy-makers and business leaders.
