FIA calls for fire industry professionals to attend BSI Masters Academy
21 September 2021
THE FIRE Industry Association’s (FIA) Internet of Things (IoT) Forum has partnered with a whole host of industry stakeholders to bring them into the crucial conversation around the IoT and its involvement in the fire industry. The organisation is now looking to work in collaboration with the British Standards Institution (BSI) – representatives of which are regular attendees to the IoT Forum – in order to assist the fire industry with this key topic.
The BSI is inviting fire industry professionals to attend a round table discussion on industry challenges that will serve as an introduction to the BSI Fire Safety and IoT Masters Academy where participants will receive a series of documents to help them build knowledge and better understand the market.
Building on the new legislative framework that’s being introduced in the UK, this exclusive programme brings together a hand-selected group of the fire safety and IoT industries’ most respected leaders and manufacturers to discuss IoT-enabled fire detection key challenges and outline the best ways in which to address them in order to ensure product compliance on the market.
The event – to be held online from 10.00 am-11.30 am on Thursday 14 October – will give participants the opportunity to discuss their challenges with peers and afford access to BSI (and, potentially, FIA) specialists to help address participants’ individual challenges.
The agenda for the discussion is as follows:
*Introduction to new legislation from the IoT perspective for domestic fire and CO alarms and what this means for the industry
*Overview of the key challenges companies are facing when it comes to meeting the new requirements and changing consumer demands for connected products – from production and assembly right through to product safety
*Assessment of the key drivers for – and blockers to – the adoption of IoT technology
*Review of how the industry is evolving
The organisers are now keen to hear from individuals who want to join the discussion as panellists. Particularly welcome are representatives from businesses who are developing, testing or launching fire safety products.
