References to EN 14059 published
The references to EN 14059 “Decorative oil lamps — Safety requirements and test methods” and some other standards are published in the Official Journal of the EU. By this procedure it is established that a presumption of conformity to the requirements of the General Product Safety Directive applies in case of compliance with these standards. This means that the standards are de facto compulsory. The Consumer Council had a leading role in this project.
