THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Whereas:

  1. Article 3(1) of Directive 2001/95/EC requires producers to place only safe products on the market.
  2. Under the second subparagraph of Article 3(2) of Directive 2001/95/EC, a product is to be presumed safe, as far as the risks and risk categories covered by the relevant national standards are concerned, when it conforms to voluntary national standards transposing European standards, the references of which have been published by the Commission in the Official Journal of the European Union in accordance with Article 4 of that Directive.
  3. In accordance with Commission Decision C(2004) 1493(3), the Commission published in the C series of the Official Journal of the European Union the references of standards EN 12586:1999 and EN 12586:1999/AC:2002 on soother holder and EN 1400:2002 (parts 1, 2 and 3) on soothers.
  4. In accordance with Commission Decision 2005/718/EC(4), the Commission published in the C series of the Official Journal of the European Union the references of standards EN 13138-2:2002 on buoyancy aids for swimming instructions and EN 1860-1:2003 on barbecues.
  5. The European Committee for Standardisation has withdrawn standards EN 12586:1999, EN 12586:1999/AC:2002, EN 1400:2002 (parts 1, 2 and 3), EN 13138-2:2002 and EN 1860-1:2003. These standards which no longer exist do not ensure compliance with the general safety requirement.
