New CEN standard for tufted, woven and knitted carpets
The European Standards Committee (CEN) has agreed to develop a new standard to specify minimum durability, environmental and toxicological requirements for tufted, woven, and knitted synthetic turf carpets.
According to the announcement, CEN Recognises the increasing focus on the environmental and sustainability properties of synthetic turf sports surfaces. The committee envisages that this new standard will be applicable to all forms of synthetic turf sports surfaces regardless they are being used indoors or outdoors or in single sport or multi-sports venues. CEN hopes that, by developing this standard, the need for new legal regulations will be reduced.
