VdS Approval of Installers for Intruder Alarm Systems

The basis of the VdS approval process are the coordinated European specifications for installers of fire and security protection systems (CEA 4048 and CEA 4049) of the Comité Européen des Assurances (CEA). VdS is accredited for the certification of EMA installers by Deutsche Akkreditierungs GmbH (DAkkS) according to DIN EN 45011. 

The intruder alarm systems must correspond to the planning principles of the guidelines VdS 2311. The approval applies to one or more VdS-approved intruder alarm systems. An initial approval is issued for a period of 18 months (so-called provisional approval); the final approval is issued for a period of four years.
