    • after demonstration, all persons can correctly don it within a period of 1 min without assistance
    • it is clearly capable of being worn in only one way or, as far as is practicable, cannot be donned incorrectly
    • it is comfortable to wear
    • it allows the wearer to jump from a height of at least 4.5 m into the water without injury and without dislodging or damaging the lifejacket
