Directive 2014/33/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 February 2014 on the harmonisation of the laws of the Member States relating to lifts and safety components for lifts Text with EEA relevance
This European Standard specifies the safety rules related to new passenger and goods/passenger lifts permanently installed in existing buildings where in some circumstances due to limitations enforced by building constraints, some requirements of EN 81-1 and EN 81-2 cannot be met (see also 4th sentence of Introduction). This European Standard addresses a number of these constraints and gives requirements for alternative solutions. It shall be read and applied in conjunction with the European Standards EN 81-1 or EN 81-2 and their amendments A1:2005 and A2:2004, including their Clause 0. This European Standard covers: - Either the construction and installation of one or more complete new lift(s) including new well and machinery spaces in an existing building; or - The replacement of one or more existing lift(s) by new ones in existing well(s) and machinery spaces. This European Standard does not cover: - Replacement or modifications of some parts to a lift already installed; - Other applications outside of the scope of EN 81-1 or EN 81-2.
