European foreword

This document (EN 15398:2020) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 134 “Resilient,

textile and laminate floor coverings”, the secretariat of which is held by NBN.

This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an

identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by September 2020, and conflicting national standards

shall be withdrawn at the latest by September 2020.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. CEN shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

This document supersedes CEN/TS 15398:2016.

Introduction

Resilient, textile and laminate floor coverings and in case of floating installation with underlays, the

combination of these floor coverings with underlays, have a number of specific characteristics and are

classified in a number of use classes.

In order to make the classification and these specific characteristics understandable and recognizable to

the consumer, graphic symbols have been developed.

For practical reasons, only symbols for characteristics linked directly to a European or ISO Standard

have been developed.
