Bureau Veritas would like to inform you that the European Union in its Official Journal has announced a correction with regard to the cessation date of EN 1836 and its replacement by the new sunglasses standard EN ISO 12312 – 1 in terms of standards harmonized under the EU Personal Protective Equipment Directive 89/686/EEC.

The original cessation date for EN 1836: 2005 +A1 : 2007 was originally listed as the 28th of February 2014. Since the replacement new sunglasses standard EN ISO 12312 – 1 was only published on the 30th of September 2013 this gave retailers and everyone else involved in the supply chain very little time to clear old stock and become attuned to the new standard. Consequently the European Union has altered the cessation date of EN 1836 from the 28th of February 2014 to the 28th of February 2015. Until the 28th of February 2015 therefore both the old and new versions of the sunglasses standard can be cited to give a presumption of conformity to the EU Personal Protective Equipment Directive 89/686/EEC.

A brief summary of the differences between the two versions of the EU Sunglasses standards is contained in Bureau Veritas Bulletin published during October 2013 shortly after the new sunglasses standard was announced. Click to view Bulletin.
