Revision of the Mandatory Standard SI 1548 part 2, to be replaced with SI 1548 parts 2 and 3. The major difference between these new drafts and the previous edition is that the old standard's scope is divided into two parts as follows:
· SI 1548 part 2 applies to babies' cot bumpers and adopts the European Standard EN 16780: August 2018.
In addition, it requires that the product warnings will appear in Hebrew as detailed in the new normative Annex D;
· SI 1548 part 3 applies to Mattresses for perambulators and similar domestic articles and adopts the British Standard BS 1877-10: 2011 + A1: 2012 with a few national changes and national deviations as follows:
Changes the standard's scope (Section 1) to apply only to mattresses and bumpers intended for babies and toddlers, such as changing mats and pads for changing units that are not part of the unit. In addition, the Hebrew section excludes children's cots, cot beds, bumpers, carrycots, cribs, and Moses baskets from the standard's scope; This standard does not apply to the following:
§ Mattresses for cots and cribs covered by SI 1548 part 1 (has not published yet);

o Adds to Section 4.4 the following requirements:
§ Cover fabrics for changing pads and changing surfaces shall comply with BS EN 14976 or SI 278;
