The New 2017 version of the EN 15651-1-4 will not be approved for use in 2017 as it has been rejected by the EC Services and will not be cited in the OJEU (Official Journal of the European Union).
Members of the CEN TC349 will now be amending the 2017 version which will move straight to a new 2018 approved version.
