JA2014 - 112 Safety Barriers Are Tested
Many parents are using safety barriers to keep their children away from the dangerous corners of the house. These products are not always compliant with the current regulations and there might be a risk of accidents, like falls, choking or even strangulation.
Officials from 12 EU countries, who are taking part to the Joint Action 2014 Activity on Safety Barriers, are currently investigating if these kind of products sold on the European market are compliant to the current standards. The market surveillance authorities are verifying 112 products.
