  • SCOPE

    1 Scope

    This part of ISO 12402 specifies the safety requirements for buoyancy aids with a buoyancy of not less than 50 N used in sheltered waters with help and rescue close at hand under such circumstances where more bulky or buoyant devices can impair the user’s activity. It applies to buoyancy aids used by adults or children.

    This part of ISO 12402 is not applicable to one-piece suits.

    1DV.1 Modification by revising the first paragraph of clause 1 by deleting the text "with a buoyancy of not less than 50 N" as follows:

    This part specifies the safety requirements for buoyancy aids used in sheltered waters with help and rescue close at hand under such circumstances where more bulky or buoyant devices can impair the user’s activity. It applies to buoyancy aids used by adults or children.

    1DV.2 Addition of 1DV.2 to clause 1 as follows:

    Where references are made to ISO 12402 standards, they shall be considered to be to UL 12402 with the applicable Canadian /US National Differences where UL Standards exist. Where references are made to particular requirements within a part they shall include the associated DVs contained in that standard, as applicable.
