Earlier today, the European Commission published in its Official Journal a new list of European harmonized standards that pertains to the General Product Safety Directive 2001/95/EC. This list of standards may be used by manufacturers of related products to prove their products comply with the safety requirements of this directive.

The following standards have been added to the list:
