EEMUA Seminar: The changing world of alarm systems and control


Theobalds Estate, Cheshunt near London




Registration Closed. The impact of new technology is nowhere more likely to be felt than in the areas of instrumentation, alarms and control.  For many years EEMUA 201 has provided the guidance for the control room in parallel with EEMUA 191 as the authoritative guidance on alarm systems. Whilst the basic principles outlined remain valid, the world is changing. Control systems are getting smarter, the control room environment is changing, equipment has more sensors to interpret and correlate correctly, the human element is being replaced or has to work safely alongside the new technology. It’s a big learning process that you can’t avoid being a part of. The seminar will look at how all this is to be accomplished without repeating past mistakes.


Attendance is free of charge for delegates from EEMUA member and associate companies. For members and associates registering on the website for the first time, please note that there is an additional validation step. In this case, we recommend registering for the event only after the ‘Welcome to EEMUA’ communication has been received. This will ensure that once logged in you will have free entry to the event.

Limited spaces are available to delegates from higher education establishments, i.e. staff and full time students, at a reduced rate. All delegates from higher education establishments will be required to provide us with confirmation of their status accordingly, e.g. copy of student ID card, personnel ID card, etc.

To book your place, click the blue ‘Register’ box at the top of the right hand column on this page.​
