An updated list of standards that give presumption of conformity to the decree 91-1292 relating to the prevention of risks arising from the use of childcare articles as been published to the French Official Journal on 29/06/2016. [1]

This list includes the latest revision of standards:

  • NF EN 13209-2: February 2016 – Baby carriers – Safety requirements and test methods – Part 2: Soft baby carriers
  • NF S54-043: September 2015 – Rainproof covers — Minimum safety requirements and test methods

In order to ensure a smooth transitional period this text specifies that it will still be possible to produce or import articles conform to the previous standards that have been replaced within one year from the date of publication that means until 1 June 2017; and that it will be possible to sell out all stocks already constituted.
