NOVEMBER 2019 - ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONICS, HARDLINES, SOFTLINES, TOYS AND CHILDREN'S PRODUCTS
On 30 September 2019, the Ministry for the Economy and Finance of France published a new Decree No. 2019-10071, harmonising the provisions in the safety regulation of certain non-food consumer products. Affected product sectors include childcare articles, bunk beds, portable ladders and stepladders, certain bedding articles, etc.
It does not modify the technical requirements applicable to the products covered by the various decrees, but with administrative modifications made as follows:
This Decree came into force on the day after the publication; nevertheless, a one-year transitional period is given. Products conforming to their corresponding original Decree may stay on the market until 1 October 2020 or stocks are exhausted. The certificates of conformity issued according to the original Decree also remain valid.
