This European Standard applies to alarm systems for all types of passenger and goods passenger lifts, in particular those covered in the EN 81 series.

This European Standard also deals with the minimum information to be provided as part of the instruction manual related to maintenance and the rescue service.

This European Standard deals with the following significant hazard relevant to lifts when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the installer/manufacturer:

- entrapment of users due to the lift not working properly.

This European Standard is not applicable to alarm systems intended to be used to call for help in other cases, e.g. heart attack, seeking information.

This European Standard is applicable to alarm systems used for lifts manufactured and installed after the date of publication by CEN of this standard. However, this European Standard can be taken into account when applied to existing lifts.

EN 81 70 gives additional requirements for persons with disabilities (e.g. inductive loop, alarm button).
