The Law requires safety signs that are used within premises should be understood and there is a duty on the responsible person to carry out an audit and review of any significant finding and if necessary make the necessary changes. The changes made to the graphical symbols under BS EN ISO 7010 are to ensure compliance to this requirement.

Conformance to BS EN ISO 7010
The Health and Safety Sign Association offer the following advice regarding conformance to BS EN ISO 7010 and compliance to the Health and Safety (Signs and Signals) Regulations.
The new changes required to conform to BS EN ISO 7010 have been adopted specifically to ensure improved intuitive comprehension of the safety message.
The legislation requires that a formal risk assessment be carried out and this will determine the need for safety signs to locate and identify lifesaving equipment, escape routes and first aid equipment.
The Health and Safety Sign Association recommend that an audit and review should be carried out to determine the residual risk associated with using a safety sign of poor non-conforming design. It is a recommendation that a plan is drawn up for their replacement. This plan will prioritise the replacement of those signs that are poorly designed and those comprehension credentials have not been proven under BS ISO 9186.
