BS ISO 13215-3. Road vehicles. Reduction of misuse risk of child restraint systems Part 3. Prediction and assessment of misuse by Misuse Mode and Effect Analysis (MMEA)
|Standard number:||21/30432265 DC|
|Status:||Draft for Comment|
This standard 21/30432265 DC BS ISO 13215-3. Road vehicles. Reduction of misuse risk of child restraint systems is classified in these ICS categories:
- 43.040.80 Crash protection and restraint systems
- 97.190 Equipment for children
This document specifies a method to predict and quantify misuse of child restraint systems (CRS) called Misuse Mode and Effect Analysis (MMEA). Such misuse can degrade the performance of CRSs.
As a predictive method it is intended to be applied at an early stage, before the CRS is put into use by consumers. The MMEA method is recommended to be used by manufacturers of CRSs.
Being predictive implies the possibility of incompleteness and errors. Such errors can be reduced if the proposed method is supported by field studies (for example according to ISO 13215-1 ) and panel method evaluation (for example according to ISO 13215-2 ).
