In 2019 the International Standard for Bollard Pull Trials was launched. Over the past 2 years a great number of bollard pull trials have been executed according to this new standard. The paper describes the technical and operational experiences of applying the new standard to bollard pull testing. Guidance is provided to reduce the uncertainty caused by load cells and power measurement to get the most reliable and repeatable bollard pull test results.
