For the Swedish market the legal requirements for lifebuoy are as follows:
The law of Protection against accidents, LSO (SFS 2003:778), describes that owners or utility owners of buildings or other facilities must reasonably maintain equipment to save lives. What is a reasonable extent is described in SRVFS 2007:5, The Swedish National Rescue Services Agency's general advice and comments on equipment for water rescue at ports, quays, bathing places and similar water near facilities.
Here we have collected all the writings and documents that you can use when you look at equipping your waterproof facility with life-saving equipment.
