Are there any extra checks needed other than by the manufacturer?

Not always. According to the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC Annex IV, if the lifting height (travel) of a vertical lifting platform exceeds 3.0 metres, the platform lift must either:

 

     

  • Be EC type tested and certified by an accredited European Notified body OR

     

  • Fully comply with the harmonised standard EN81-41 OR

     

  • The manufacturer must have a quality assurance system, such as ISO 9001, approved by an accredited notified body, which covers both product development and manufacture.
  •
