Update of harmonised standards list under General Product Safety

 

On 10th October 2019, the European Commission published:

 

Commission implementing decision (EU) 2019/1698 of 9 October 2019 on European standards for products drafted in support of Directive 2001/95/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on general product safety.

 

which includes the official list of titles and references of published and withdrawn harmonized standards under General Product Safety Directive (GPSD) 2001/95/EC.

 

In this decision, Annex I includes the list of current harmonised standards under GPSD and Annex II includes the list of withdrawn standards.

 

Within this list of withdrawn standards, some of them (non-exhaustive):

 

  • EN 15649 series for floating leisure articles for use on and in the water
    • However, it is important to highlight that EN 71-1 on toy safety still contains a reference to EN 15649
  • EN 957 series (some parts) for Stationary training equipment (other parts still remain in the list of current harmonized standards)
