This part of ISO 12215 is applicable to thermosetting resins and glass-fibre reinforcement used in the construction of small craft with a length of the hull of up to , in accordance with ISO 8666. This part of ISO 12215 specifies the minimum requirements for material properties of glass reinforcement and resin matrix and the reference laminate
This part of ISO 12215 may be applicable to materials other than those specified, provided that the minimum requirements and properties of the reference laminate are met.
NOTE The underlying reason for preparing this International Standard is to harmonize existing standards and recommended practices for loads on the hull and the dimensioning of small craft because they differ too considerably and thus limit general
worldwide acceptability of boats.
