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

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www .iso .org/patents).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

expressions related to conformity assessment, as well as information about ISO's adherence to the

World Trade Organization (WTO) principles in the Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) see the following

ISO 18079-1:2018(E)
Introduction

The IMO International Convention on the Safety of Life at Sea of 1974 (SOLAS 74) Chapter III

Regulation 20.8 sets requirements for the annual servicing and inspection of inflatable life rafts,

inflatable lifejackets, marine evacuation systems, and maintenance and repair of inflated rescue boats

on ships. This regulation refers to the IMO Recommendation on the conditions for the approval of

servicing stations for inflatable life rafts Assembly resolution A.761(18).

However, this resolution only provides specific standards for the servicing, maintenance and repair

of inflatable life rafts and remains silent for other types of inflatable or inflated life-saving appliances

mentioned by SOLAS Chapter III Regulation 20.8 and consequently, the application of this statutory

requirement could vary widely in practice.

The ISO 18079 series addresses those areas in which the IMO recommendation is silent, in order to

facilitate consistent implementation by maritime Administrations. It is intended for use as a companion

to the IMO recommendation and also to encompass all other relevant life-saving appliances covered by

the ISO 18079 series and not necessarily regulated by IMO instruments.

The IMO Recommendation, on the conditions for the approval of servicing stations for inflatable

life rafts Assembly resolution A.761(18), specifies obligations and responsibilities for Administrations,

manufacturers and ship owners. While the ISO 18079 series covers the requirements of this resolution,

it has been rearranged and reformulated in order to enable a single entity, i.e. a servicing station, to

attain certification in accordance with the ISO 18079 series. This does not mean that the specified

obligations and responsibilities are lifted, delegated or otherwise transferred by authority from those

parties to the single entity being certified.
