This specification covers youth-resistant firearms containers (YRFCs), which are lockable containers that completely contain firearm(s) to prevent unauthorized access to firearm(s). These containers can be mechanical, electromechanical, or combination thereof. This specification:

Establishes a moderate security level for firearms storage intended to prevent youths from gaining unauthorized access to firearm(s); and

Establishes a consistent standard for testing and compliance certification.

This specification contains functional, operational, safety, and performance requirements for YRFCs.

This specification does not apply to transport-type firearm carrying cases, full-sized light gun cabinets, gun safes, high security gun safes, or container for firearms that exceed a length of 508 mm (20 in.).

This specification is intended to prevent unauthorized access to children up to and including age eleven.

This specification is not intended to:

Ensure theft resistance of the YRFC or the contents of the YRFC; or

Ensure quick access to a firearm or assure long-term reliability of the YRFC operation to provide quick access to a firearm.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.

The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portions of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
