Efectis launches EU-funded initiative towards coherence of EU fire safety statistics, terminology and methodologies. This project results from an EU Parliament motion voted in 2018 (see pinfa Newsletter n°95). The aim is to map terminology and fire data collected by EU Member States, including on consequences of fires, and to propose common approaches, in order to develop a meaningful EU data system. The project launch webinar took place on 26th February 2021.
