Two draft amendments (n°s 152 = ITRE/6385 and BUDG/4026) were submitted to the European Parliament proposing to engage a European pilot project aiming to identify actions to improve data and statistics for fires and fire prevention, and to engage actions to promote domestic fire safety and fire safety in building renovation. These were submitted by Bendt Bendtsen (EPP, Denmark) and more than 20 other MEPs (EPP, S&D, ECR, ALDE and Greens). Amendment 6385 was approved by ITRE (Industry, Research and Energy) Committee on 10th July and then 4026 was approved by the Budget Committee (BUDG) on 25-27th September (with a proposed budget of 630 000 €). This now goes to Parliament Plenary.
