Scope

1.1 This specification relates to the safety performance specifications for commercially manufactured fun-karts intended for private use, on suitable off-road terrain, by consumers.

1.2 This specification is intended to reduce hazards, other than those inherent in the sport of fun-karting, to the users of fun-karts during normal intended use by specifying performance standards of manufacturing.

1.3 This specification applies to fun-karts for private use and does not apply to concession, race, home-made, consumer-modified fun-karts, fun-karts that are pedal-powered, unpowered fun-karts, or fun-karts, which are used for commercial purposes.

1.4 This specification recognizes that there are operational hazards relating to fun-karts, which operators and passengers are deemed to have accepted by their use and operation of the fun-kart including, but not limited to, falling out, running into, through, under or over objects, upsetting the fun-kart, general operator recklessness, pinches, scratches, or bruises, or a combination thereof.

1.5 This specification does not cover labeling, maintenance, or use. For use and maintenance, see Safety Guide F1928.

1.6 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.7 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
