France Updates Decree 91-1292 – The List of Standards that Give Presumption of Conformity

SafeGuardSToys and Juvenile ProductsFebruary 21, 2020

Publication of standards that give presumption of conformity to decree 91-1292 relating to the prevention of risks arising from the use of childcare articles.

An updated list of standards that give presumption of conformity to France’s decree 91-1292 relating to the prevention of risks arising from the use of childcare articles was published to the French Official Journal (JORF) February 8, 2020. 

The updated list includes the latest revision of the standard:

  • NF EN 1130 (November 2019) – Children’s furniture – Cribs – Safety requirements and test methods

In order to ensure a smooth transitional period, the text specifies that it will still be possible to produce or import articles which conform to the previous standards for a period of one year from the date of publication – that means until February 1 2021, and that it will be possible to sell out all stocks already on the market.

The standard applicable to rain covers has been withdrawn:

  • NF S 54-043 (September 2015) – Rainproof covers – Minimum safety requirements and test methods.
Rainproof covers no longer fall within the scope of Decree 91-1292. Standard NF S54-043 can still be used as part of the framework of the General Products Safety Directive.
