According to the European standard EN 1627 ff. burglar-resistant building components and structural elements (doors, windows, etc.) are divided into the resistance levels RC1-RC6 and therefore replace the previous European standard ENV 1627.

The scientific evidence according to
ENV 1627 is generally still valid.
WK is superseded by RC, however, this does not apply to level 3 for structural elements with anti-panic function, as to create more difficult test conditions a portable drilling machine is utilized in this test procedure. 

In the tests of the national testing centres
the burglary attempts are simulated
with different types of burglary and
toolsets within a pre-determined length
of time for each resistance level.
