Amendment A2 of EN1317 published in the Official Journal of the European Union
EN 1317-5:2007+A2:2012, the 2012 amendment of EN 1317-5, has now been published in the Official Journal of the European Union (see http://ec.europa.eu/enterprise/policies/european-standards/harmonised-standards/construction-products/index_en.htm)
This amendment contains the references to snow removal and to the use of the 2010 versions of EN 1317-1, 2 and 3 in the CE marking process for VRS instead of the previous 1998 versions of these supporting standards. However, amendment A2 will only come into force on the 1st January 2013. The consequence of this is that CE marking will have to continue to be based on the 1998 versions of Parts 1, 2 and 3 until this date. Consequently, from the 1st January 2013, CE markings will be given on the basis of the 2010 versions.
PRODUCTS CE MARKED ON THE BASIS OF 1998 VERSION
For information, for products that have received a CE marking according to the 1998 versions of Parts 1, 2 and 3, it will be possible to obtain a new CE marking on the basis of the 2010 versions (from 01/01/2013), on condition that the test data obtained satisfies the current requirements of the 2010 standard. This change is not obligatory since CE marking based on the 1998 standards remain valid. However, manufacturers may update their certificates, if they wish to do so and at the discretion of the certification body concerned.
