New European Standards child safety internal blinds

20 February 2014

Brussels, 20 February 2014 - CEN announces the publication of three new European Standards that will help manufacturers to improve the safety of internal window blinds. These standards are aimed in particular at reducing the risk of accidents with children associated with the cords that are used to operate window blinds.

The new European Standards have been made available to all CEN Members (since 19 February). During the next six months, they will be 'implemented' (i.e. published) by all the Members of CEN, i.e. the National Standards Bodies of 33 European countries (including all EU and EFTA Member States), in accordance with the CEN Internal Regulations. CEN Members may also translate these European Standards into the national languages of their respective countries.  

To obtain the Standards, please  contact the National members - see website link with all the national website links
