This press release is over six months old and the details may have been superseded. Please contact the Press Office for the latest information.

The European Fire & Security Group (EFSG) has appointed Graham Orme, BRE Global International Director, as Chairman for a three year term.

EFSG is an association of established certification bodies in Europe specialising in the fire and security sectors. It provides a network of highly experienced certifiers with respected quality marks which help product and systems manufacturers to access European and worldwide markets.

The certification bodies, and their associated test laboratories, cooperate to form agreements which allow mutual recognition of each other’s test results. This enables a manufacturer to obtain multiple quality certification marks on the basis of one set of tests, and as a consequence make significant savings in cost and time.

Graham Orme said ‘I am very pleased to be appointed as Chairman to the EFSG. I have been involved with the group for many years and I am proud of what the membership has collectively achieved. I look forward to further development of the ESFG to assist industry to penetrate European and other global markets.’
