European Commission updates list of European Harmonized Standards for the General Product Safety Directive (2001/95/EC)

On April 13, the European Commission published an updated list of the European harmonized standards that pertain to the General Product Safety Directive (2001/95/EC). The standards on this list may be used by manufacturers to prove that their products complies with the essential requirements of this directive.

This updated list is important to all manufacturers that have used European harmonized standards to prove compliance with the aforementioned directive. If you have done so, we recommend you to check the new list of standards to see if any of the standard you applied have been updated, or whether there are new standards available for your products. When standards have been updated by this list, you need to re-evaluate your products against the updated standard and update your documentation.

The updated list of standards can be found in our Library shortly
