Fire Safe Europe,
the voice of Europe fire safe in its buildings.
Ready to work together?
Welcome to Fire Safe Europe, where you will find information on fire safety and its related topics – Buildings Sustainability, Construction Product Regulation, Facades, FIEP, Fire Safety Engineering, Smoke Toxicity, ….
Fire Safe Europe (FSEU) is the 1st European association for fire safety in buildings. We are a non-profit organisation whose mission is to improve fire safety in buildings for people and society.
Fire in buildings are bigger, more unpredictable and more dangerous than ever before, and many of the current regulatory requirements around fire safety in buildings are not providing an adequate level of fire protection for European citizens. Fire Safe Europe (FSEU) works constantly to change this status quo by working with experts, policy and decision makers to ensure that people and communities across Europe are safe from fire in every building they spend time in.
Today, Fire Safe Europe members are fire experts, researchers, firefighters, European associations, leading International manufacturers for cables, concrete, ceilings, fire protection equipment, flame retardants, insulation, fire stopping and fire protective systems and more. The work of Fire Safe Europe is complemented by its online platform – The European Fire Safety Community – which counts more than 600 members.
Today the Community works on the most ambitious project: The Fire Safety Rating Scheme in Buildings. The project is organised around four topics which we envisage to be the cornerstones of a holistic and accessible fire safety assessment for buildings: data collection & analysis, sustainability, social justice and model fire safety assessment.
Together we are working to make Europe fire safe.

Let’s build change together
We asked Michael Strömgren a few questions about performance-based design, prescriptive methods, and the link between the two.
Performance-based design of buildings using Fire Safety Engineering (FSE) tools had opened new possibilities for to designing large and complex buildings which could not have been designed in the same way using existing prescriptive rules. The primary aims of FSE must continue to be to prevent the loss of life. The misuse of FSE (be it deliberate or unintentional) in order to reduce costs or to change a building’s use after completion is a risk that needs to be kept in mind. The “precautionary principle” should always be abided by when it comes to fire safety measures.
The 1st edition of the Comparative Study, titled Building Height Study, was published in 2014. Like today's edition, it aimed to clarify what the national requirements related to fire safety were in schools, hospitals and high-rise residential buildings. The goal was...
