The Government of Israel has notified the World Trade Organization (WTO) of its revision to mandatory standard SI 14988 – Children's High Chairs: Safety Requirements.
The revised draft adopts the European Standard EN 14988 1: 2006+A1: August 2012, with the following national changes that appear in the standard's Hebrew section:
- Changes the Normative references (paragraph 2)
- Changes the packaging requirements to comply also with the packaging requirements that appear in Israel Mandatory Standard SI 562 part 1 (paragraph 7)
- Changes the product information (paragraph 8)
The revised standard is expected to be enforced six months after its publication in the country's official gazette. A transition period of one year will be provided, during which time children's high chairs could be tested according to the old or the new revised standard.
