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

This document is closing the regulatory gab between aquatic toys smaller than 1,2 m on the one hand

and inflatable boats providing a buoyancy greater than 1 800 N on the other hand. It includes all kinds

of boat propulsion and covers canoes and kayaks as well. The mostly combined safety and performance

requirements deal with space per person, load capacity, floating stability, engine power and behaviour

after loss of air pressure (failure of an air chamber).

Practical test runs shall prove the manoeuvrability of the boat under various conditions and the

adequate motorization.

Comprehensive consumer information related to selection before purchase and during use complete

the requirement profile of the document.

This document covers boats of customary construction and design with an overall length from 1,2 m

(uninflated, flat) up to 1 800 N buoyancy. Such boats are mostly intended for recreational water

activities and for the use by children. However, smaller tender boats such as those used on yachts

also fall within this size range and small boats for specific applications (e.g. fishing boats) may also be

included. Therefore, irrespective of the main group of users, powered boats and sail boats have also

been taken into consideration.

Floating leisure articles for use on and in the water —
Part 7:
Additional specific safety requirements and test methods
for Class E devices
1 Scope

This document is applicable for Class E floating leisure articles for use on and in water according to

ISO 25649-1 regardless whether the buoyancy is achieved by inflation or inherent buoyant material.

This document is applicable with ISO 25649-1 and ISO 25649-2.

Class E devices are intended for use in bathing areas or in protected and safe shore zones.

NOTE 1 Typical products forming Class E (see Annex F):

— inflatable boats for rowing or paddling of near oval shape with or without transom;

— canoes and kayaks;
— inflatable boats made from plastic sheets or from reinforced materials;
— motor kit/sail kit as additional option.
NOTE 2 Typical places for application of Class E devices:
— moving from A to B for pleasure purposes;
— staying on the water for relaxing;

— moving from shore to the main boat, transportation of persons and load (tender boat).

3.1
residual buoyancy
provision of remaining buoyancy in case of a defect of any buoyancy chamber
3.2
inflatable boat

buoyant structure (hull), achieving all or part of its intended shape and buoyancy by the medium of

inflation and intended for the transportation of persons on the water; its design and shape give it the

capability to withstand forces and movements arising from various sea conditions

Note 1 to entry: An inflatable boat is considered as an aquatic toy (toy in form of a boat) according to EN 71–1, when

a) it is intended for use without any propelling means (oars, paddles, motor, sail) and these are also not to be

fitted subsequently, and

b) its overall length is <120 cm and the boat is additionally marked with the following warning note “Caution,

to be used only in shallow water and under supervision”.
3.3
tender

boat that serves as an auxiliary means in working around a bigger boat but mainly to commute from

the boat to shore or other places nearby

Note 1 to entry: In this respect it serves for transport of crew and load. Tenders are propelled by oars, frequently

they are equipped with an outboard engine, partly they can be fitted with sails. For stowage reasons tenders are

often small in size but robust in material and construction.
3.4
leisure boat

boat that serves as a recreational boat, slowly moving around on the water for relaxing, extended

bathing, etc
Note 1 to entry: It does not have the purpose of a working boat.
3.5
inherent buoyant material

non-crosslinked (closed-cell) foam or other materials enclosed in (a) sealed compartment(s) in the hull

which has a specific weight less than fresh water

Note 1 to entry: Boat made from inherent buoyant material is a buoyant structure (hull) achieving all or parts of

its intended shape and buoyancy from soft foam, hard foam or sealed chambers filled with air, gas or granules.

3.6
inboard area

internal surface area defined by a vertical plane tangential to the innermost side of the buoyancy tube

and perpendicular to the deck
3.7
inboard length

length of the cockpit, including the area below any spray cover, measured along the boat centreline

between the innermost points of the bow and stern
3.8
usable seating area

inboard area, including the area below any spray cover, available for the users to sit on

3.9
permissible rated load
maximum loading of the boat by persons, propelling means and other items
