Elle spécifie également un système de classification.
L'ISO 20957-1:2013 s'applique à tous les appareils d'entraînement fixes. Cela comprend les appareils utilisés dans les zones d'exercices d'organismes, comme les associations sportives, les établissements scolaires, les hôtels, les salles de sport, les clubs, les centres de rééducation et les établissements ouverts au public où leur accès et la surveillance sont expressément réglementés par le propriétaire, les appareils destinés à une utilisation à domicile, ainsi que tous les autres types d'appareils, y compris ceux qui sont motorisés.

Nepremična oprema za vadbo - 1. del: Splošne varnostne zahteve in preskusne metode (ISO 20957-1:2013)

Ta del standarda ISO 20957 določa splošne varnostne zahteve in preskusne metode za nepremično opremo za vadbo, če niso spremenjene v drugih delih tega mednarodnega standarda. Ta del standarda ISO 20957 obravnava tudi okoljske vidike. Določa tudi klasifikacijski sistem (glej točko 4). Ta del standarda ISO 20957 se uporablja za vso nepremično opremo za vadbo, kot je opredeljeno v točki 3.1. Sem spada oprema za uporabo v prostorih za vadbo ustanov, kot so športna združenja, izobraževalne ustanove, hoteli, športne dvorane, klubi, rehabilitacijska središča in studii (razreda S in I), pri čemer dostop in nadzor izrecno ureja lastnik (oseba s pravno odgovornostjo), oprema za domačo uporabo (razred H) in druge vrste opreme, vključno z opremo na motorni pogon, kot je opredeljeno v točki 3.1. Zahteve posameznega dela standarda ISO 20957 imajo prednost pred ustreznimi zahtevami tega splošnega standarda. Če naj bi nepremično opremo za vadbo po načrtih uporabljali otroci, mlajši od 14 let, se uporabljajo drugi standardi, razen če je tovrstna nepremična oprema za vadbo namenjena za izobraževalne namene v šolah in drugih pedagoških dejavnostih za otroke pod nadzorom usposobljenega odraslega inštruktorja. Ta del standarda ISO 20957 se ne uporablja za nepremično opremo za vadbo, namenjeno za zunanjo uporabo brez nadzora, tj. je prosto dostopna.
