This standard provides industry with minimum performance requirements and first article qualification test procedures for aviation fuelling hose accessories used worldwide. Its application by hose users, accessory manufacturers/suppliers and refuelling vehicle suppliers should ensure that such items are fit-for-purpose, do not cause inadvertent wear of the outer cover of the hose, do not contribute to foreign object debris (FOD) and do not invalidate the performance characteristics of hoses that have been tested in accordance with EI 1529 Aviation fuelling hose and hose assemblies or ISO 1825 Rubber hoses and hose assemblies for aircraft ground fuelling and defuelling – Specification.

This standard is intended for the convenience of both manufacturers and users, as an aid to procurement of standardised equipment and materials.

Accessories within the scope of EI 1522 include, but are not limited to:

  • spiral coils;
  • wraps;
  • beads;
  • collars;
  • sleeves (including those used for overwing fuelling grade identification);
  • covers (including those used to improve the visibility of hydrant intake hose), and
  • caster dollies.

This standard does not apply to hose end assemblies, couplings, nozzles, lift-assist devices or other metallic mechanical fittings that attach at hose ends.
