GAR update: withdrawal EN60335-2-102:2006 standard

Kiwa would like to inform you about the following date of withdrawal of the standard EN 60335-2-102:2006 (including amendment A1:2010, if applicable). This standard will be withdrawn from 22 January 2019. This implies that appliances that need to be certified after this date need to comply with the state of art standard EN 60335-2-102:2016.

Please contact your local Kiwa representative, in order to advise you for your specific situation.

As you might know, it is mandatory for the GAR (Gas Appliance Regulation) that products are state of art. In order to be able to certify appliances, the manufacturer needs to demonstrate compliance with the state of art standard(s).
