Agricultural tractors - Instructional seat (Adopted ISO 23205:2014, second edition, 2014-12-15, with Canadian deviations)
This is the second edition of CAN/CSA-M23205, Agricultural tractors - Instructional seat, which is an adoption, with Canadian deviations, of the identically titled ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Standard 23205 (second edition, 2014-12-15). It supersedes the previous edition published in 2012 as CAN/CSA-M23205 (adopted ISO 23205:2006). At the time of publication, ISO 23205:2014 is available from ISO in English only. CSA Group will publish the French version when it becomes available from ISO.
For brevity, this Standard will be referred to as CAN/CSA-M23205 throughout.
The adoption of this ISO Standard, in conjunction with the endorsement of the three-part series of ISO 3776 Standards on seat belt systems, is an important step in setting criteria for uniform requirements for instructional seats in agricultural machinery throughout North America. It should be noted, as stated in the scope of this Standard, that these instructional seats are not intended for use by children.
This Standard is related to and integrated with CSA B352.0-16, Roll-over protective structures (ROPS), falling object protective structures (FOPS), operator protective structures (OPS), and tip-over protective structures (TOPS) for mobile machinery - General Canadian requirements, and other CSA Group Standards in the ROPS/TOPS series of Standards on roll-over and tip-over protective structures for mobile machinery.
This International Standard specifies the minimum design and performance requirements for an instructional seat and restraint designed for limited use by a trainer or trainee or service person inside an enclosed cab of an agricultural tractor.
The instructional seat is neither intended for, nor is it designed for use by, children.
