France Updates Presumption of Conformity Standards List for Childcare Article Safety Decree

France has
updated its list of standards that give presumption of conformity to Decree
91-1292. This decree aims to reduce the risks associated with using childcare

Published in the Journal Officiel de
la République Française (JORF) on February 8, 2020, the update includes two
changes which will interest stakeholders. Firstly, the new list includes the
latest revision to NF EN 1130 (November 2019) – Children’s furniture – Cribs –
Safety requirements and test methods. Secondly, NF S 54-043 (September 2015) –
Rainproof covers – Minimum safety requirements and test methods, has been

The text associated with the
inclusion of the updated version of NF EN 1130 states that manufacturers and
importers can still introduce new products to the previous standard until
February 1, 2020. It is also possible to sell out of stock that is already on
the market. It is hoped these provisions will allow a smooth transition to the
new requirements.

In the case of withdrawal of NF S 54-043, this is
because rainproof covers are no longer covered by Decree 91-1292. Stakeholders
should be aware
NF S 54-043 can still be used in
relation to the General Products Safety Directive.
