This European Standard is applicable to inflatable play equipment intended for use by children fourteen years and under both individually and collectively. This standard specifies safety requirements for inflatable play equipment for which the primary activities are bouncing and sliding. It sets measures to address risks and also to minimise accidents to users for those involved in the design, manufacture and supply of inflatable play equipment. This standard specifies information to be supplied with the equipment. The requirements have been laid down bearing in mind the risk factor based on available data. This standard specifies the requirements that will protect a child from hazards that he or she may be unable to foresee when using the equipment as intended, or in a manner that can be reasonably anticipated. This standard is not applicable to inflatable water-borne play and leisure equipment, domestic inflatable toys, air-supported buildings, inflatables used solely for protection, inflatables used for rescue, or other types of inflatable toys where the primary activity is not bouncing and sliding. This standard is a test standard. The standard deals in particular with aspects of product safety. The committee responsible for this standard is NA 112-05-09 AA "Aufblasbare schwimmende Freizeitgeräte einschließlich aufblasbarer Boote und Zubehör" ("Inflatable floating leisure articles including inflatable boats and mountings") at DIN.
