    A 2.2 SWL static test as applied to LSA is not required

    Hello for the last time tonight.

    A 2.2 SWL static test as applied to LSA is not required.

    I just want to make sure that "A 2.2 SWL static test as applied to LSA is not required" has the same meaning as "A 2.2 SWL static test, which is applied to LSA, is not required.

    Do you confirm or deny?

    Thank you.

    It's difficult to be absolutely certain without knowing the full context, but I would say that this passage refers to some piece of equipment which is not classified as Life Saving Apparatus (LSA). As such, it does not require the 2.2 SWL static test which it would have to undergo if it were classified as LSA.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    A 2.2 SWL static test as applied to LSA is not required
    A 2.2 SWL static test, which is applied to LSA, is not required.

    Assuming what Grumply said is true, shouldn't the word 'applicable' be used instead of applied?

    A 2.2 SWL static test, which is applicable to LSA, is not required.
