The French version, EN 16128 was published in December 2015. A transitional period of three years was adopted to enable manufacturers to move from the old version to the new version as part of the CE conformity of their products. However, Alutec laboratory is already equipped to perform the tests according to the new version of the standard 
The migration test is a breakthrough in controlling the determination of nickel release rate. Indeed, the new procedure permits a reliable measurement of the order of 95% when the above method was only about 30%. This gain in reliability is obtained particularly by removing the section of the components of the frame and their necessary savings before immersion in artificial sweat solution.
