EU Updates Standards Under Safety Regulation

The Commission of the European Union (EU) has amended its list of standards that can be used to demonstrate compliance with the essential requirements of its Directive on General Product Safety (2001/95/EC, also known as the GPSD).

According to an Implementing Decision (EU) 2022/1401 published in mid-August in the Official Journal of the European Union, the Commission has amended Annex 1 of the GPSD to add or replace 13 individual standards covering a wide range of products, including children’s furniture and child use and care items, and gymnastic equipment.

The Implementing Decision also updates EN IEC 62368-1, which covers audio, video, information, and communications technology equipment, to reflect the 2020 amended version of the standard.
