Quality and testing guidelines for the RAL quality mark RAL-GZ 951/1

Following the usual 5-year cycle for national and European standards, the quality and testing guidelines for the RAL quality mark RAL-GZ 951/1 have been revised, and were released in June 2013.

They will now be translated into French.

The following important amendments have been made, amongst others:

  • Adjustments due to the recent changes to European Standard EN 840
  • Insertion of additional tests:
    • Rigidity test for RFID transponder in chipnest of comb pick-up
    • Hazardous materials testing (PAK)
  • Improved definition of suitability for use of waste disposal equipment following testing
  • More precise definition of test rig requirements for rad test
  • Insertion of requirements for recyclability of all materials used

The GGAWB is currently working on proposals for particularly environment-friendly waste bins and recycling bins, which will be incorporated into the RAL-GZ 951/1 next year.
