Standard history

Main + amendment
This European Standard specifies the safety requirements applicable to carriers for cableway installations designed to carry persons. This part of EN 12929 specifies the safety requirements for the general requirements for cableway installations designed to carry persons. These requirements are applied to the various types of installations and their environment.
This document defines general technical characteristics and prescribes design principles and general safety requirements.
It does not deal with details of operation and maintenance, nor with calculations and detailed requirements for the manufacture of components.
This Part 1 does not deal with special regulations applicable to bi-cable reversible aerial ropeways without carrier truck brakes, which are the subject of Part 2.
It includes requirements relating to the prevention of accidents and the protection of workers.
It does not apply to cableway installations for transportation of goods or to lifts.
Clause 11 describes the minimum requirements to be normatively satisfied for passageways and work areas. National regulations of a building or federal/state nature or which serve to protect particular groups of people remain unaffected.
It may not always be possible for all types of cableway installation to transport all particular groups of people (e.g. persons with restricted mobility). The objective should be, however, for a cableway installation to enable the transportation of the largest possible passenger population.
- The scope of the proposed amendment A1 on this standard is to modify article 10.2 on braking system in order to be in line with the text of the regulation 2016/424/
