Ships and marine technology — Marine environment protection — Oil booms — Part 3: End connectors
This document specifies the requirements for the design of end connectors of oil booms used for the prevention of spreading of oil spills on water. These criteria are intended to define minimum mating characteristics and are not intended to be restricted to a specific configuration. It should be considered that different types of connectors are preferably used in different areas. This document does not define any priority. It remains the responsibility of manufacturers and users to select the right connector for the intended application. Stability features of boom connectors are the result of interaction between bodies of booms and connectors. This document does not purport to address all safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. However, it is the responsibility of the user of this document to establish the appropriate safety and health procedures, and to determine the applicability of regulatory limitations.

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

This document specifies the design of end connectors of oil booms. It has been developed after
considering the existing ASTM standards and national legislative requirements, and discussions
with individuals involved in the development of these standards. This document incorporates and
acknowledges the use of and refers to many of the elements provided in ASTM F962 and F2438.
This document gives some general guidelines for oil boom manufacturers as well as users with regard
to subjects dealing with producing and purchasing such types of equipment. This document does not
define any specific type and size of connector for a particular application, as so many variables have to
be taken into consideration.
The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Committee F-20 has published two standards
relating to boom connectors (ASTM F962 and F2438). ASTM F1093 specifies static laboratory tests of
the strength of an oil spill response boom under tensile loading. ASTM F1523 provides a guide on the
selection of a containment boom that may be used to control spills of oil and other substances that float
on the water.
The Japanese Industrial Standard JIS F9900 (Parts 1 and 2) provides the necessary conditions and
specifications for the design, manufacture, and other aspects of oil booms and connectors.
It is the responsibility of the user of this document to establish appropriate safety and health practices
prior to use.
