New Standards

As of September 2013  - BS EN 1836 : 2005 A1 : 2007 has been superseded and withdrawn, this was the result of the ISO, European and BSI standards committees approving a new standard which will apply to sunglasses and related eyewear.

The new sunglass standards are:

BS EN ISO 12312-1:2013 (corrigendum October 2013) – Eye and face protection – sunglasses and related eyewear. (Actual standard for sunglass tests and reports)

BS EN ISO 12311: 2013 – Personal protective equipment – test methods for sunglasses and related eyewear. (Standard which defines the test methods to be used)

Optolab became accredited to BS EN ISO 12312-1:2013 in March 2014.
