The standard has been finally also cited in the OJEU (Official Journal of the European Union), and this is a great news. Now the standard has its legislative status as an Harmonised Standard.

This means that it will be possible to use again the old standard until April 2023, but it will be possible to use the new standard if a manufacturer wants to do it.
