In the last five years, 49% of furniture recalls in Europe have related to outdoor products. To maintain market share and place safe products onto the market, suppliers must stay informed on modifications to product design and updates on product standards.
This seminar will help local furniture manufacturers gain an in-depth understanding of recent changes to the EN 581 series of standards. We will focus on the 2017 revisions:
- EN 581-1:2017 – General safety requirement for outdoor furniture
- EN 581-3:2017 – Mechanical and safety requirements for outdoor tables
With references to the 2015 update:
- EN 581-2:2015 – Mechanical and safety requirements for seating
We will also cover the Reach requirements applicable to outdoor furniture.
Learn about the changes, how they will affect your products, and what you need to do to comply with the new requirements.
