Adoption of the amending order recasting the order of 28 May 2015

03.05.2024

On 3 May 2024, an important step was taken in the Parliament of the Brussels-Capital Region with the adoption of the amending order recasting the order of 28 May 2015 creating a public interest body centralising the management of prevention and security policy in the Brussels-Capital Region. The latter is the legislative text that establishes two essential pillars of prevention and security policy in the Brussels Region: safe.brussels under the official name of Brussels Prevention & Security, and Brusafe. 

The reform, focused on rationalising and optimising existing structures, has several strategic components. 

First of all, concerning safe.brussels, the common name of our body is now recognised, enabling it to better position itself in the regional landscape. Its missions are now clearly structured around five major areas:

  • Development of security knowledge; 
  • Operational coordination of public policies; 
  • Support for the capacities of civil protection authorities; 
  • Promotion of security professions; 
  • Strengthening of front-line services for crisis prevention and management. 

These missions take the form of a series of concrete actions, structured around the risk cycle, encompassing identification, analysis, prevention, preparedness, public policy coordination, assessment, support for training and resilience policy. 

Regarding Brusafe, the provisions relating to this entity have been repealed. However, the missions assigned to it have been redistributed. Those concerning the development of an integrated vision of training for the safety, prevention and rescue professions, as well as the provision of equipment and infrastructure, will be integrated within safe.brussels. 

This ambitious reform aims to enhance the coordination and effectiveness of prevention and security policies in the Brussels-Capital Region, while adapting existing structures to contemporary security and citizen protection challenges.
