Mountaineering equipment are very complex products that require many tests to verify their full functionality and durability. All the requirements we mention here are based on the applicable standards and your mountaineering equipment should meet them. In this case, certification pursuant to Government Regulation 21/2003 Coll. (Directive 89/686/EEC) is mandatory:

  • quality of the design/construction of mountaineering equipment
  • dimensions
  • static strength
  • dynamic strength
  • chemical resistance
  • accompanying documentation  (drawings, material safety data sheets, manufacturing methods/processes, etc.)
  • manual
  • marking (completeness, durability)
  • insufficient strength
  • insufficient documentation, instructions and marking
  • ČSN EN 12277 - Harnesses
