People lifters or joined lifters (for people and goods)

People lifters or joined lifters (for people and goods)

If those lifters have a fall hazard of more than 3 m height, they are listed as machinery with a higher hazardous potential in Annex IV of Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.

We test and certify the following:

  • Platforms for lifting persons according to EN 280
  • Lifting tables according to EN 1570
  • Lifting platforms according to EN 1756
  • Load suspension means for people according to EN 1808
  • Mast climbing work platforms according to EN 1495
  • Loading bridges according to EN 1398
  • Hoists within the scope of Annex IV without assumption of conformity for existing harmonised standards

Depending on the conformity assessment process chosen, the manufacturer’s documents will be inspected during the test and certification procedure as to whether they meet the requirements, i.e. essentially the following:

  • Test of specimen whether it complies with the technical documents provided
  • Test for conformity with harmonised standards
  • Test of risk analysis, risk assessment and risk mitigation
  • Test for evidencing strength
  • Inspection of instruction manual
  • Inspection of documents evidencing CE

Just in case. If your machinery has to comply with several European Directives, we are able to offer an all-in-one solution, i.e. a combined service of testing and certifying according to those directives, mainly the ones listed below:

  • Machinery according to Directive 2006/42/EC
  • Personal protective equipment according to PPE Regulation (EU) 2016/425
  • Equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres according to Directive 2014/34/EU
  • Electromagnetic compatibility according to Directive 2004/108/EC

Since the new Directive 2006/42/EC has become effective, there is now the opportunity to describe the conformity of a machine mentioned in Annex IV as part of the extensive quality assurance process. See also:
