Inline-skates are very complex products, on which many tests have to be done to verify their full functionality, robustness and durability. All the requirements we mention here are based on the applicable standards and your inline-skates should meet them. The responsibility for demonstration of conformity to the applicable standards rests with the manufacturer, who has to declare that its product meets all the applicable requirements laid down. Basically, there are three ways of demonstrating the conformity:

  1. The manufacturer has its own, in-house test station and verifies all the parameters in there. 
  2. The manufacturer has the parameters verified by one of the testing laboratories that are competent to perform the required tests.
  3. The manufacturer takes a risk, does not verify any parameters and simply places its product on the market. This, however, is a very hazardous approach both for the manufacturer and (especially) for the users of such a product.
