    Summary list of titles and references harmonised standards under Directive 2007/23/EC for Pyrotechnic articles

    The summary list hereunder is a compilation of the references of harmonised standards which have been generated by the HAS (Harmonised standards) database. This IT application HAS automates the process of the publication of the references of harmonised standards in the Official Journal of the European Union.
    Although the list is updated regularly, it may not be complete and it does not have any legal validity; only publication in the Official Journal gives legal effect.

    Notice: Until that standard is reviewed and republished, Member States shall consider batteries and combinations which comply with standard EN 15947 to be in conformity with the essential safety requirements set out in Annex I to Directive 2007/23/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council only if, before being placed on the market, they have been clearly labelled as indicated below. For batteries and combinations to be placed on flat ground: “Place battery on flat ground” or “Place combination on flat ground”. For batteries and combinations to be embedded into soft ground or material: “Insert battery upright in soft ground or other non-flammable material, e.g. sand” or “Insert combination upright in soft ground or other non-flammable material, e.g. sand”. For batteries and combinations to be fixed to a post: “Fix battery firmly and upright to a solid post”, “Ensure top of battery clears post” or “Fix combination firmly and upright to a solid post”, “Ensure top of combination clears post”. The method and means for fixing the battery or combination to a post shall be described in sufficient detail and in terminology which can be easily understood by non-professional users in accompanying instructions for use. For other batteries and combinations: [specify other safety precautions if not intended and suitable to be placed on flat ground, or to be embedded into soft ground or material or attached to a post].

    Note 1: Generally the date of cessation of presumption of conformity will be the date of withdrawal (“dow”), set by the European standardisation organisation, but attention of users of these standards is drawn to the fact that in certain exceptional cases this can be otherwise.

    Note 2.1: The new (or amended) standard has the same scope as the superseded standard. On the date stated, the superseded standard ceases to give presumption of conformity with the essential or other requirements of the relevant Union legislation.

    Note 2.2: The new standard has a broader scope than the superseded standard. On the date stated the superseded standard ceases to give presumption of conformity with the essential or other requirements of the relevant Union legislation.

    Note 2.3: The new standard has a narrower scope than the superseded standard. On the date stated the (partially) superseded standard ceases to give presumption of conformity with the essential or other requirements of the relevant Union legislation for those products or services that fall within the scope of the new standard. Presumption of conformity with the essential or other requirements of the relevant Union legislation for products or services that still fall within the scope of the (partially) superseded standard, but that do not fall within the scope of the new standard, is unaffected.

    Note 3: In case of amendments, the referenced standard is EN CCCCC:YYYY, its previous amendments, if any, and the new, quoted amendment. The superseded standard therefore consists of EN CCCCC:YYYY and its previous amendments, if any, but without the new quoted amendment. On the date stated, the superseded standard ceases to give presumption of conformity with the essential or other requirements of the relevant Union legislation.
