Camp Energy harness update

A clean bill of health for the Energy harness by CAMP

The European Commission recently announced a safety alert for the Camp Energy harness through their rapid alert website. This alert has been cancelled and the product is not subject to a recall having been shown to pass all the required standards.

A consumer alert was published by the European Commission, warning that Camp Energy harnesses do not meet the requirements of the relevant European standard.

This alert has now been removed from the rapid alert website, and the alert has been cancelled. We received the following message from the manufacturer CAMP to pass on to consumers and other interested parties:

You might have been contacted about or seen a safety alert related to the CAMP Energy harness, that was published on the official EU webpage.
 
This alert has been the result of a posting directly to safety alert system by a National Authority who selected the product from a retailer as part of a random inspection according the EU market surveillance procedure.
 
CAMP was not informed of the alert or the potential issue before the posting was made. Following our analysis where we noted the incorrect assembly of the harness on the testing apparatus in the picture by the lab, it has been confirmed that the testing was not correctly done in accordance with the standard EN 12277 and the alert has been removed.
 
This means there is no actual cause for concern, the product is in conformance and there is no recall action. We are sorry for all troubles resulting from this unjustified safety alert.
 
Just contact us for any questions or doubts that may arise.
Thank you for your cooperation.

In summary, this popular harness from CAMP is not subject to a safety alert or recall, and users can continue to use their harness of this model in complete confidence that it meets the required standard.
