EN 16304:2013 (E) 3 Foreword This document (EN 16304:2013) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 58 “Safety and control devices for burners and appliances burning gaseous or liquid fuels”, the secretariat of which is held by BSI. 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of an identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by September 2013, and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn at the latest by September 2013. Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent rights. CEN [and/or CENELEC] shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission and the European Free Trade Association, and supports essential requirements of EU Directive(s). For relationship with EU Directive(s), see informative Annex ZA, which is an integral part of this document. This document is intended to be used in conjunction with EN 13611:2007+A2:2011. This document refers to clauses of EN 13611:2007+A2:2011 or adapts clauses by stating “with the following modification”, “with the following addition”, “is replaced by the following” or "is not applicable" in the corresponding clause. This European Standard adds clauses or subclauses to the structure of EN 13611:2007+A2:2011 which are particular to this standard. Subclauses or annexes which are additional to those in EN 13611:2007+A2:2011 are numbered starting from 101 or are designated as Annex AA, BB, CC, etc. Safety Integrity Level (SIL) classification according to EN 61508 (all parts) cannot be claimed based upon compliance with this standard.
