UL cordially invites you to attend the 4th annual UL European Fire Forum

For two days, UL experts and guest speakers from across the industry, including compliance experts, regulatory authorities and US Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) will provide valuable updates for everybody involved in the building and fire safety world.

Attendance for the two-day Fire Forum is free of charge

NEW THIS YEAR: In addition to the well-established European Fire Forum, UL is offering a fee-based, one-day training session consisting of three different, very focused courses:

  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Protection of Exterior Walls from Fire Spread
  • Doors & Hardware

The training session will take place on the Monday prior to the Forum at the same venue; however, it is independent of the Forum. Details on content, costs, conditions, and how to register can be found by visiting the following webpage: Fire Forum Training

UL’s 4th Annual European Fire Forum

Vienna, Austria – April 26/27, 2016

This is UL’s 4th year of hosting this educational event. This year we will visit the charming city of Vienna, Austria. Once again, UL will bring together experts from around Europe and the U.S. to explore current and future issues of impact to all of us involved in building and fire safety.

The forum will include two days of educational presentations followed by panel discussions, with plenty of time for questions and dialogue. Two special themes will be covered:

1. We will revisit the three main aspects of building and occupancy safety:
  • Alarms
  • Suppression
  • Compartmentation
2. Building protection systems:

Should owners specify a higher level of safety than minimum construction codes?

Join us to review and discuss the US and European views and approaches on following topics and many more:
  • Disaster management / community risk assessments
  • Sprinkler testing and installation requirements
  • Tall wood buildings and testing of wood
  • Testing and regulation relating to fire walls
  • Fire alarm systems and fire detection devises
UL European Fire Forum Registration is FREE
