Coding guidelines and a quality assurance manual have been developed and validated by the project's participants. The project participants have set up structures within their countries to collect and validate data for the project, which is now widely seen as the reference international database for fire events.
After having established the project quality guidelines and the quality-assurance procedure, data acquisition had proceeded according to plan. An updated version of the database was provided to all participants annually. Currently, the event database contains more than 490 events. One or two meetings of the project steering body are held each year with the NEA's support.
