ISO 14314:2004 specifies the safety requirements for RIC engine re-coil starting equipment intended for use on reciprocating internal combustion engines for land, rail and marine use, excluding engines intended for use to propel road vehicles and aircraft. It may be applied to engines intended for use to propel construction and earth-moving machines and for other applications where no other suitable International Standards exist.
In addition to the technical safety requirements, it also contains the method of checking the adherence to these requirements.
This International Standard only addresses the hazards associated with the installation and operation of re-coil starting equipment.
It is primarily directed at machines which are manufactured after the date of publication of this International Standard.
