3.1.4: Notes

3.1.4.1. Evidence of conformity with the above standards may be certified only by laboratories which conform with Standard EN ISO/IEC 17025 as amended.
3.1.4.2. Specific cases
If it seems obvious that packaging is sufficiently safe for children because they cannot get access to the contents without the help of a tool, the test referred to in section 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 does not need to be performed.
In all other cases and when there are sufficient grounds for doubting the security of the closure for a child, the national authority may ask the person responsible for putting the product on the market to give it a certificate from a certifying laboratory, referred to in section 3.1.4.1, stating that either:
the type of closure is such that it is not necessary to perform the test referred to in section 3.1.2. or 3.1.3; or
the closure has been tested and has been found to conform with the standards referred to above.
