Brussels, February 25, 2015

Urgent action is needed now to stop the tragedy of out-dated fire safety regulations that claims the lives of thousands every year.

That was the stark message issued today following a high-level meeting between Members of the European Parliament (MEPs), the European Fire Fighters Unions Alliance (EFFUA) and building industry experts, organised by Fire Safe Europe (FSEU).

Top of the agenda was a call to tackle deadly, out-dated and inconsistent building fire safety irregularities across Europe and the need for tough new fire testing standards for construction materials.
