EN 54-16 is the product standard for voice alarm electronics. In Europe it is mandatory that products used for voice alarm purposes are tested against this standard. The tests are for the whole product – processing, amplifiers and fault monitoring system and have to be carried out by an accredited laboratory.
If you only make part of the system, such as amplifiers or processors, the standard doesn’t permit items to be individually tested. Not having a relevant certificate is a serious barrier to entry for manufacturers trying to sell into the voice alarm market.
The voice alarm market demands EN54 certification, but most professional audio manufacturers make only some elements of the voice alarm system. This means they cannot get certified because the standard is for testing an entire system.
