(informative)
Relationship between this International Standard and the Essential
Requirements of EU Directive 89/686/EEC

This International Standard has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission

to provide one means of conforming to Essential Requirements of the New Approach Directive 89/686/EEC on

the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to personal protective equipment.

Once this standard is cited in the Official Journal of the European Union under that Directive and has been

implemented as a national standard in at least one Member State, compliance with the normative clauses of

this standard confers, within the limits of the scope of this standard, a presumption of conformity with the

corresponding Essential Requirements of that Directive and associated EFTA regulations.

WARNING: Other requirements and other EU Directives may be applicable to the products falling within the

scope of this standard.

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.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The main task of technical committees is to prepare International Standards. Draft International Standards

adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as an

International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

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.

Amendment 1 to ISO 12402-7:2006 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 188, Small craft,

Subcommittee SC 1, Personal safety equipment, in collaboration with Technical Committee CEN/TC 162,

Protective clothing including hand and arm protection and lifejackets.

Exposure tests shall be based on typical fuels used in the intended area of application.

Immediately following removal from the cold chamber, the samples shall be dropped using different orientations onto a concrete

floor five times from a height of 1 800 mm. Each sample shall then be manually operated five times and examined for signs of cracking.

The samples shall then be returned to the cold chamber for 15 min. Finally, the samples shall be individually removed and subjected to

the tensile strength test and strength/slippage test.

The webbing which is used for the applicable tests in 4.7.1.2.1 shall be soaked in fresh water for 2 min prior to the

strength/slippage test.

Each flexible or moveable tab of a polymeric part shall be mechanically operated for 5 000 cycles at a rate of 1 cycle/s. The tab

shall be completely engaged/disengaged. Also, for hardware which is designed to separate into two parts (i.e. buckles), the parts shall

be completely engaged/disengaged. In addition, the samples shall be manually operated five times prior to the tensile strength test and

strength/slippage test.

Strength values are for the fixed-straight-length body strap method. The values shall be doubled for the closed-loop assembly

method.
