Applus+ Laboratories: What is the EN54 certification?


    Fire detection and fire alarm systems play a crucial role in the fire safety sector. To guarantee the performance and quality of these systems in various buildings and civil engineering works, the European Union has established the EN54 certification standard.

    This standard comprises a series of sub-standards that strictly regulate product specifications, test methods, and performance criteria for fire detection and alarm equipment.

    Necessity of EN54 Certification

    For fire detection and fire alarm systems seeking entry into the European market, obtaining appropriate test reports and certificates through EN54 certification is essential.

    EN54 standard series includes approximately 30 categories, such as:  EN54-3 for Fire Alarm Devices - Sounders, EN54-7 for Smoke Detectors - Point Smoke Detectors Operated by Scattered Light, Transmitted Light, or Ionization, EN54-12 for Smoke Detectors - Line Detectors Operated by Light Beams, EN54-16 for Voice Alarm Control and Indication Devices, EN54-18 for Input/Output Devices, EN54-23 for Fire Alarm Devices - Visual Alarm Devices, EN54-29 for Multi-sensor Fire Detectors - Point Detectors Using a Combination of Smoke and Heat Sensors, and more.
