Standards and security - the topic of the first 2017 issue of "BDS Compass" magazine
 

 

We live in an increasingly insecure world - terrorist attacks, burglary, hacking attacks, organized crime... And again the standards help to put the chaos of hazards into order and ensure our security.

 

The expert Eng. Bakoy Bakoev presents the new regulation on security of construction works. Europe recognized in the late 90s of the last century that safety - one of the fundamental right of every citizen - was becoming a major problem. The new regulation on physical security of construction works is a basic legal act that will serve as a basis for contracting entities, designers, manufacturers, constructors and control bodies. And it is no coincidence that most of the requirements of the regulation refer to specific standards leading to aligning the requirements for a specific product and define clear criteria for conformity assessment.

 

Important standards in the scope of BDS/TC 102 "Societal and Citizen Security” are briefly presented. Their field of standardization is security of citizens, infrastructure and utilities; border security, security and safety in case of crisis. The standard regulating the private security operations and playing a very important role in the protection of people and organizations is also presented. 

 

The expert Zdravko Georgiev explains the increased awareness of the role of standards in the field of electric power engineering and energy efficiency.
