The European Federation of Associations of Locks & Builders Hardware Manufacturers


Title: Hardware for side hung & outward opening shutters (EN 14648)

Convenor: Paul Prunty, IRE

Purpose: Task Group responsible for non-harmonized voluntary EN standards for side hung & outward opening shutters.


Progress with the revision of EN 14648 Standard has regretfully come to a halt.
It was realized that it is a very difficult situation requiring a lot of compromise from everybody to find a solution. The present EN 14648 published Standard is dated 03-10-2007.

On 29.06.2017, the TG was informed of the BT (CEN Technical Board) decision to abandon all Standards presently with “PWI” status that are older than 3 years. This has no effect on TG16 work: work can be continued as before with revision discussions with or without a PWI.
• As discussed with Inge Lidén, interest, motivation and availability within the group is presently at a low.

Latest meetings:        not known.
