What is “ISO 17357-1:2014”

The “Yokohama Pneumatic Rubber Fender” was developed in 1958 based on a rubber company’s technology for automobile tires and rubber aircraft fuel tanks. Progress in the development of such floating pneumatic rubber fenders is closely related to the progress and development of ship technology and has to continuously cope with
progressively larger oil tankers such as VLCC’s, ULCC’s, large gas carriers, bulk carriers, and floating structures.

Floating pneumatic fenders are used worldwide for ship-to-ship (STS) transfer operations, terminals, and for all kinds of ships. These fenders play a critical role in the safe operation of ship berthing and mooring.

ISO17357:2002, “the standard of high pressure of floating pneumatic rubber fenders”, had been published in 2002 under growing needs for international standardization specified material, performance, and dimensions of floating pneumatic fenders to prevent a variety of originally designed products with low quality had been introduced into the market.

In 2014, ISO17357:2002 had been renewed as the 1st edition of ISO17357-1:2014 to strengthen its standard concerning design, material, and certification of floating pneumatic fender.
