This document, contains the general safety philosophy, a guideline on the safety assessment that experts are recommended to use when drafting standards and guidance on specific general safety recommendations, and test methods, relating to hazards caused by holes and openings that are common to all types of furniture.
The Technical Report contains guidance that is intended to be used by designers and manufacturers to assess any inherent risk within their products.
The Technical Report is intended to address common risks posed by items of furniture to adults and children over 36 months old. For products designed for children under 36 months attention is drawn to CEN/TR 13387 series of documents.
Safety risks addressed by this document are hazards caused by holes and openings and specifically:
—   entrapment of fingers;
—   shearing or compression/crushing of fingers;
—   sharp edges.
Safety risks not addressed by this document, because they are considered outside of the scope of this report and associated with specific product types, but can be caused by holes and openings include:
—   entrapment of head and neck;
—   entrapment of limbs;
These guidelines do not cover all types of hazards and risks, such as inappropriate use of products, or inadequate supervision of children.
NOTE   Attention is drawn to the importance of ensuring that all other potential hazards relevant to the product e.g. stability, strength and the effects of electrical power etc., are fully addressed in the process of standards writing.
This document has one Annex:

This European Standard specifies test methods for the determination of strength and durability of the structure of all types of seating without regard to use, materials, design/construction or manufacturing process.
This European Standard does not apply to children’s highchairs, table mounted chairs and bath seats which are covered by other European Standards.
Test methods for the assessment of ageing, degradation, ergonomics and electrical functions are not included.
The test methods are not intended to assess the durability of upholstery materials, such as upholstery filling materials and upholstery covers.
This European Standard does not include any requirements. Requirements for different end uses can be found in other Standards.

This European Standard specifies test methods for the determination of the durability of hand and power operated reclining mechanisms for adult seating.
It also specifies test methods for the determination of the durability of mechanisms for converting sofas and chairs into beds.
The test methods are based on use by a person weighing up to 110 kg.
Requirements for the durability of reclining mechanisms are not included within this standard.
Test methods for strength and durability of the structure are not included.
It does not apply to the safety of electrically driven seating which is covered by the machinery, low voltage and EMC directives.
It does not apply to tilting and reclining mechanisms fitted to work chairs.

This European Standard specifies a method for the assessment of the surface resistance to penetrating scratches. It relates to the rigid surfaces of all finished products, regardless of their material.
It does not apply to finishes on leather and fabrics.
Method A is suitable for all types of surface coatings and coverings except for melamine faced boards (according to EN 14322) and HPL (according to EN 438-1). It simulates measurable penetrating and/or deforming scratches.
Method B is suitable for all types of surfaces. It simulates first visible scratches that may only be a change in the gloss.
The test is intended to be carried out on a part of finished furniture. It can however be carried out on test panels of the same material, finished in an identical manner to the finished product, and of a size sufficient to meet the requirements of the test.
It is essential that the test be carried out on unused surfaces.

This European Standard specifies test methods and requirements for the strength and durability of all types of locking mechanisms for furniture and their components for all fields of application.
This European Standard does not apply to latching mechanisms.
The tests consist of the application of loads, forces simulating normal functional use, as well as misuse that might reasonably be expected to occur.
With the exception of the corrosion test in 6.5, the tests are designed to evaluate properties without regard to materials, design/construction or manufacturing processes.
The strength and durability tests only relate to the locking mechanisms and their components and the parts used for the attachment, e.g. screws.
The strength and durability tests are carried out in particle board with specified properties. The test results can only be used as a guide to the performance of a piece of furniture.
The test results are only valid for the locking mechanisms and their components tested. These results may be used to represent the performance of production models provided that the tested model is representative of the production model.
With the exception of corrosion, ageing and influences of heat and humidity is not included.
Annex A (normative): Product information system.
Annex B (normative): Test parameters.

This Technical Specification specifies a system for the classification of the resistance to:
-   Dry heat
-   Wet heat
-   Cold liquids
-               Abrasion
-   Scratching
For resistance to dry heat, resistance to wet heat, and resistance to cold liquids, this Technical Specification applies to all furniture surfaces regardless of materials, except finishes on leather and fabrics.
The classification for the surface resistance to abrasion applies to foil, laminate, melamine faced boards, pigmented and transparent coatings. It does not apply to the surfaces covered by EN 14434.
The classification for the surface resistance to scratching has two methods, A and B. Method A applies to all types of surface coatings and coverings except for melamine faced boards and HPL. Method B applies to all types of surfaces. It does not apply to finishes on leather and fabrics.
