Designated Standards

The UK equivalent to the ‘EU Harmonised Standards’ will be ‘Designated Standards’ and these will primarily be BS EN standards published by the British Standards Institution (BSI).

All standards used in the assessment and testing are the latest harmonised standards (referred to as designated standards in the UK) or the latest edition in the case of published standards that are yet to be harmonised.

If updates to the standards are required, this is to be completed prior to submission for certification.
