New standard for office desks
An amended standard for office desks has been published:
BS EN 527-2: 2016 + A1: 2019 Office furniture. Work tables. Part 2. Safety, Strength and durability requirements
The amendment is a minor change relating to test requirements, in particular how to test the stiffness of the structure of lightweight desks. The amendment should not affect any desks that have already met the requirements of BS EN 527-2: 2016.
If you would like to have your desks assessed to BS EN 527-2: 2016 + A1: 2019, FIRA International has the capability to do this. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 01438 777700.
