Foreword

This document (CEN/TR 15970:2009) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 212 “Pyrotechnic

articles”, the secretariat of which is held by NEN.

This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission and the

European Free Trade Association.

Introduction

Mandate M\416 is issued by the European Commission to CEN. The main reason for this mandate is the fact

that on 14 June 2007, Directive 2007/23/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on the placing on

the market of pyrotechnic articles, was published in the Official Journal. In Annex 1 of Directive 2007/23/EC

the essential safety requirements for pyrotechnic articles are given.

In order to facilitate the process of demonstrating compliance with the essential safety requirements,

harmonized standards for the design, manufacture and testing of pyrotechnic articles have to be developed.

Mandate M 416 describes the work that the EC wants CEN to perform.

During its meeting in Delft, October 2007, CEN/TC 212 has decided to share the corresponding work to be

done between five Working Groups of which WG 4 for "Pyrotechnic articles for vehicles".

At its plenary meeting in Berlin, May 2008, CEN 212 has agreed to produce, as a first step, a report

presenting the results of the work presently done and describing the next steps for developing EN standards.

1 Scope

This Technical Report gives a description of the context regarding the situation of pyrotechnic articles for

vehicles and their consideration within the Directive 2007/23/EC with the aim to define what harmonized

standards shall be developed in order to comply with the essential safety requirements of the Annex 1 of the

Directive.
2 Description of the context

The Directive 2007/23/EC for the placing on the market of pyrotechnic articles clearly includes pyrotechnic

articles for vehicles (see article 2 item 5 of the Directive). CEN has received a mandate for the development of

harmonised standards for pyrotechnic articles. Therefore during the first CEN/TC212 meeting in October 2007

a working group (WG4) was established dedicated to the development of standards for pyrotechnic articles in

vehicles.

An agreement between CEN and ISO on technical cooperation between ISO and CEN from 1991 (Vienna

agreement) makes it necessary to carefully inspect all available material on the ISO-level which may influence

or may be reused for the standardisation of pyrotechnic articles. Specifically this is ISO 12097, where parts

may be very useful in order to use a compatible terminology and/or testing regime.

Pyrotechnics articles for vehicles are produced worldwide for installation in vehicles manufactured in Europe

or as spare parts on running vehicles within Europe.

Some pyrotechnic articles for vehicles can be regarded intermediate products, which will only enter further

production steps, while some pyrotechnic articles for vehicles are directly installed into a vehicle, e.g. as a

replacement part but also during vehicle assembly. This indicates that pyrotechnic articles for vehicles are

subject to different levels of professional use.

Pyrotechnic substances are found in vehicle components such as airbags, seatbelt-pretensioners, circuit

breakers, and various mechanical actuators. Parts, which are traded between suppliers and original

equipment manufacturers (OEM), can be seen on all levels from the most basic units, i.e. the igniters or micro-

gasgenerators for a pyrotechnical mechanism, to v
