The Parliament Magazine published Fire Safe Europe’s blog post on Bucharest’s fire tragedy.
“We need a common level of fire safety in buildings to protect us no matter where we are. And we need better regulations and harmonised standards taking the fire safety performance of building materials into account.
We also need to be sure that regulations and standards put in place are being enforced. What is being built into buildings is often not what was originally in the design.
Substitution of products for cheaper and maybe more unsafe products happens on building sites and often without knowing the consequence for fire safety. The EU needs a fire safety strategy.”
