This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2018. Therefore this version remains current.
This International Standard specifies requirements, test methods, and marking, labelling and packaging, as appropriate,
of both permanent and temporary single-point anchor devices exclusively for the attachment of personal
protective equipment (PPE) for protection against falls from a height for fall arrest, work positioning and travel
restriction (work restraint).
It is applicable only to anchor devices for PPEs that conform to ISO 10333-1, ISO 10333-2, ISO 10333-3 and
NOTE 1 Further standards are in preparation for other types of PPE: ISO 10333-6 and ISO 14566 (see bibliography).
Anchor devices are rated to sustain a maximum (dynamic) arresting force of 6,0 kN, and a maximum (static) loading of
1,0 kN (assuming a person of 100 kg mass) in post-fall arrest suspension, work-positioning mode, or restraint mode.
Anchor devices are intended for single person use only. A rescuer should not attach to the same anchor device as a
person being rescued, unless the anchor device has been specifically designed for such purposes, and the instructions
for use specifically permit this application.
NOTE 2 Vertical rigid or flexible line systems and horizontal lifelines are not within the scope of this International Standard,
but are covered in ISO 10333-4 and ISO 16024.
