The standards ensure the minimum security conditions for products and users.
The standards in force on the French market are the EN safety standards:
- Applied: EN 13743
- Agglomerates: EN 12413
- Superabrasives: EN 13236
The Decree DGCCRF makes EN 12413 for agglomerates and EN 13236 for portable rotary superabrasives mandatory. (Links to page decree)
The marking of products marked with EN standards must imperatively correspond to that required by the standard (see opposite).
Failure to comply with this marking leads to non-compliance with the standard. In addition to marking the products must meet the technical requirements of the standard.
Safety standards are subject to revisions
