CFPA Europe has developed a European guideline for Security of Businesses. It includes solutions recommended from experts from all over Europe and is endorsed by Insurance Europe.
Burglary is a risk for all kinds of businesses, starting with small shops and offices up to financial companies and jewellers, and therefore concerns everybody.
Burglary can only be combated by taking adequate preventive measures. In most cases, this means the use of mechanical or electronic protective devices. For objects in general, adequate protective measures can be a precondition for burglary and vandalism insurance.
Therefore CFPA Europe has developed “Security guidelines for businesses” (Guideline No. 12:2023 / S). These European guidelines give recommendations as to which security requirements should be applied to a company. At the same time, assessment of the respective risk and the benefit-cost ration of such measures are taken into consideration.
As a result, six non-binding risk classes for business premises are described in the guidelines. For each risk class recommendations are given how to select adequate measures that complement each other and form a security chain.
These Security Guidelines can be used as a guide for risk management planning and they provide practical recommendations to protect commercial and business premises against
These Guidelines are endorsed by Insurance Europe, the European insurance and reinsurance federation.
