What is a tracked changes standard?

A tracked changes version of a Standard indicates the changes made, during the standards revision process, between the active standard and its previous version. Additions, deletions, and other formatting and/or content revisions are clearly displayed as underlined and strikethrough texts, ensuring all changes made between the two documents are quickly and easily identified. This version of the standard includes both a copy of the new standard, along with a track changes version.

What is the published document about?

This is a tracked change version of a European standard.  A pushchair or pram, including any part of the pushchair or pram that has several functions or can be converted into another function, should comply with relevant standards.  The tracked change standard gives the latest available information, detailing crucial technical advancements that relate to the safety requirements and test methods for pushchairs and prams. 

This European Standard does not cover toys, baby carriers fitted with wheels, pushchairs and prams propelled by a motor and pushchairs and prams designed for children with special needs.

Who is this published document for?

This new version is targeted at the manufacturers of pushchairs and prams, the Baby Products Association and F I R A – Furniture Industry Research Association.

Why should you use this published document?

The tracked changes report provides the current specification for the safety and functionality of prams and pushchairs.  This latest input focuses on key areas of care and offers the best possible guidance for these vehicles.    

What's changed since the last update?

The tracked changes highlight the differences between the 2012 standard and the 2019 revision.  In comparison with BS EN 1888:2012, tracked changes present necessary technical changes relating to chemical hazards, entrapment hazards, hazards from moving parts, entanglement hazards.  They also relate to parking device test methods, the stability of the vehicle and introduce significant information that gives relevant translations for warning sentences.  In addition, the standard provides information on the assessment of moving parts of canopies and on the arrangement of approval marks for car seats.

In November 2014, the European Working Group decided to split EN 1888 into different parts to clearly treat in a different way, new products or new functions of wheeled child conveyances.  EN 1888 is currently composed of the following parts:

  • BS EN 1888-1, Childcare articles — Wheeled child conveyances — Part 1: Pushchairs and prams
  • BS EN 1888-2, Childcare articles — Wheeled child conveyances — Part 2: Pushchairs for children above 15 kg up to 22 kg
  • BS EN 1888, therefore, becomes BS EN 1888-1 and is only applicable to pushchairs and prams. It will be used as a reference in future parts
