EN45501 Published

27th Feb 2015


The new standard has been published by CEN and available on their website.

It is also available for purchase on the BSI website.  It should be noted that they have already withdrawn the existing standard.

What is important to note is that the existing standard remains as the harmonised standard on the website of the EU and it is assumed that it we can continue to use it until it is removed from there.

Whilst the situation remains very unclear the advice to members is where possible use the EN45501 (2015) wherever possible. I would also advise that you start the process of updating any procedures and processes to reflect the new standard. I will be drafting a cross reference chart and more detailed advice in the next couple of months and there is training date below on the EN45501(2015).
