The European Commission (EC) has published on July 23, 2019 the Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 20191254 to update the harmonized standard for trampolines on the safety of toys drafted in support of Directive 2009/48/EC.

CEN revised harmonized standard EN 71–14:2014+A1:2017 on trampolines for domestic use, the reference to which has been published in the Official Journal of the European Union, in order to also ensure the safety of in-ground (‘buried’) trampolines that are increasingly being placed on the market.

This resulted in the adoption of harmonized standard EN 71–14:2018 on trampolines for domestic use, the reference to which is now published in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Therefore the Decision provides the following:

  • EN 71–14:2018 Safety of toys — Part 14: Trampolines for domestic use is the new harmonized standard for trampolines.
  • EN 71–14:2014+A1:2017 Safety of toys — Part 14: Trampolines for domestic use will be withdrawn on January 22, 2020.
