ICS Code (Indoor sports equipment): 97.220.30
scope:

This part of ISO 20957 specifies general safety requirements and test methods for stationary training equipment unless modified in the other parts of this International Standard. This part of ISO 20957 also covers environmental aspects.

It also specifies a classification system.

This part of ISO 20957 is applicable to all stationary training equipment as defined in 3.1. This includes equipment for use in training areas of organizations such as sport associations, educational establishments, hotels, sport halls, clubs, rehabilitation centres and studios (classes S and I) where access and control is specifically regulated by the owner (person who has the legal responsibility), equipment for domestic use (class H) and other types of equipment including motor driven equipment as defined in 3.1.

The requirements of a specific part of ISO 20957 take priority over the corresponding requirements of this general standard.

If the intended use of the stationary training equipment is for children under 14 years other standards are applicable unless such stationary training equipment is intended for educational purposes in schools and other pedagogical contexts for children under the surveillance of a qualified adult instructor.

This part of ISO 20957 does not apply to stationary training equipment intended for outdoor use without supervision e.g. freely accessible.

NOTE 1 If a user has special needs (medical rehabilitation, disability) it is essential that the owner (the person with legal responsibility) conducts a specific risk assessment to determine safe use and if necessary to ensure trained staff are available to supervise the activity.

NOTE 2 In the event that the stationary training equipment is intended for medical purposes, attention is drawn to the requirements of Council Directive of 14 June 1993 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to medical devices 93/42/EEC in addition to the requirements of this part of ISO 20957.

NOTE 3 In the event that the stationary training equipment is intended for children's purposes, attention is drawn to the requirements of Council Directive of 18 June 2009 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to safety of toys 2009/48/EC in addition to the requirements of this part of ISO 20957.

NOTE 4 In the event that the stationary training equipment is designed to be accessible to people with disability, attention is drawn to any relevant national guidelines.

NOTE 6 In the event that the stationary training equipment contains environmental critical components, attention is drawn to national regulations, e.g. European Directives.
