The recent publication of the EU standard EN71-14 Safety of Toys – Trampolines for Domestic Use is now impacting retailers, manufacturers and importers of domestic trampolines. To help toy companies understand the new requirements and what they mean to their business, Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services is organising a Trampoline Safety Day on Wednesday, February 25th.

The event will be held at Bureau Veritas’ testing laboratory in Warrington, Cheshire.

The day will be presented by Simon Stokes, toy technical consultant, and will provide attendees with the opportunity to network with industry peers and to understand and witness how trampolines are assessed and tested for safety and compliance.

The EU standard EN71-14, published in December 2014, specifies requirements and test methods for trampolines for domestic use, their access devices and their enclosures, intended for outdoor and/or indoor use above ground level by one person at a time.

The standard splits domestic trampolines into three separate categories (mini, medium or large) depending on frame size, frame height and maximum user weight. The scope includes the very small trampolines with a handle that are intended for quite young children, right up to the very large ones that are usually used in domestic back gardens.

The event is open to all. Places are limited; people interested to attend should send their contact details to bvsales@uk.bureauveritas.com or should call 01925 854 360.
