Standard history

EN 13155:2020/prA1
Main + amendment
EN 13155 has been prepared to be a harmonized standard to provide one means for non-fixed load lifting attachments used on cranes to conform with the essential health and safety requirements of the Machinery Directive.

EN 13155 specifies safety requirements for non-fixed load lifting attachments for cranes, hoists and manually controlled load manipulating devices. These include plate clamps, vacuum lifters, lifting magnets, lifting beams, C-hooks, lifting forks, clamps and lifting insert systems for use in normal-weight concrete.

EN 13155 does not give requirements for:

—  non-fixed load lifting attachments in direct contact with foodstuffs or pharmaceuticals requiring a high level of cleanliness for hygiene reasons,

—  hazards resulting from handling specific hazardous materials (e.g. explosives, hot molten masses, radiating materials),

—  hazards caused by operation in an explosive atmosphere,

—  hazards caused by noise,

—  hazards relating to the lifting of persons,

—  electrical hazards,

—  hazards due to hydraulic and pneumatic components.

For high-risk applications not covered by this standard, EN 13001-2:2014 gives guidance to deal with them. It does not generally apply to attachments intended to lift above people. Some attachments are suitable for that purpose if equipped with additional safety features. In such cases, the additional safety features are specified in the specific requirements.

EN 13155 does not cover slings, ladles, expanding mandrels, buckets, grabs, or grab buckets. And it is not applicable to non-fixed load attachments manufactured before the date of its publication.
