The BS EN 15651 1-5:2017 and BS EN 12004 1-2:2017 are still being harmonised, and we await confirmation of their approval in the OJEU (Official Journal of the European Union). There are minor changes and improvements in these specifications which ensure procedures are clearer and diminish any ambiguity over performance requirements. 4ward Testing is set up to carry out any testing to the new specifications and have developed a new test rig which gives us larger testing capacity with increased accuracy of amplitude and elongation measurements.
