Safety standard EN 13209-1 Framed back carriers has been published both by CEN and BSI, however, it has come to light that an old committee copy has been published rather than the copy approved for publication. Unfortunately, the published copy is contradictory in a number of places and has diagrams that are very difficult to make out, with text so small that it cannot be read.
This issue is being addressed and the correct version will be made available as soon as possible. Originally it was thought that the amendment process and all that entails would have to be commenced but the Association, which holds the relevant Committee’s secretariat, has been advised that a speedier solution will be applied. Members that aren’t sure how to proceed in the meantime are advised to contact Julie Milne – firstname.lastname@example.org
