Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www.iso.org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

Introduction
0.1 Motives, problems, risk assessment, methods

Investigations in statistical data related to drowning accidents and near-drownings create a new

awareness about the enormous relevance of drownings in many countries. In particular, during

childhood drowning is the second most common cause of death. Due to a lack of exactness of the

available statistical data, they do not reveal details concerning the relation between drowning accidents

and the involvement of certain products. Such links can be shown only for segments of the wide range

of water activities related products. Consumer protection needs to rely on conclusions by risk analysis,

experience and analogy to known cases. Considerations based on probability and the precautionary

principle is the second access to the problem. That applies in particular for the product group “Floating

leisure articles for use on and in the water” as this group is constituted here and now as a market

segment to be addressed by standardization for safety reasons. Beyond the statistical deficiencies,

relations between certain products and an increased risk of drowning are plausible. A risk analysis

undertaken by WG 13 shows what the partial and final risks are.

Until now, standardization has addressed the risks through a wide series of standards aiming at the

protection against drowning and covering a number of products used in leisure activities on and in

the water. There are standards covering the relevant products for activities like playing in the water,

water sports, boating, diving, learning to swim and even the emergency devices as buoyancy aids and

live jackets. Beyond these typical and traditional activities and products, there is a new tendency for

the creation and marketing of more and more new products. They are all aiming to increase pleasure

and entertainment on the water but also more speed, action and thrill as far as the new adventurous

activities as “tubing”, “white water rafting” etc. is concerned. The new products are partly modified

traditional core products or they are derived from them and further developed to something new.

Additionally, there is a clear trend to bring more and more formerly land based playground equipment

on the water. The term “amphibiation” is justified as in many cases the original function of the product

is maintained, i.e. they can be used both ways. Typical examples for the first mentioned kind of new

products are modifications of inflatable boats into a bathing raft in fantasy shape or the further

development of the earlier swim-ring into a flotation seat. Examples for “amphibians” exist in inflatable

trampolines, climbing installations being put on the water for action and fun. Inflatable floating

armchairs and sun loungers including the mini bar and sun shade rather serve for more comfort and

relaxation when bathing. This trend is clear and very likely to continue.

It can be shown that the nature of these new products provide an equal or even higher risk potential

than the original core products. In parallel, the number of these products override the number of the

core products. In cases of collective use, the frequency of use is considerably increased which in turn

increases the likelih
