Adoption of EN ISO 20471:2013

As of October 1, 2013, the European Commission has decided that EN ISO 20471: 2013 "High Visibility Apparel - Test Methods and Requirements" will supersede EN471: 2003 + A1: 2007 "Dedicated High Visibility Warning Tester - Test Methods and Requirements" as EU harmonization of safety reflective clothing standards. As of October 1, 2013, all EEC certificates of safety reflective clothing tested to EN471 will be ineffective; all safety reflective clothing should comply with the requirements of EN ISO 20471: 2013 prior to launching into the EU market.
