Lorry Loader Technical Files

January 2017 saw the release of ALLMI Guidance Note 025, which looks at the subject of ‘Lorry Loader Technical Files’ (commonly referred to as Build Files).   

The guidance explains the legal requirements for this documentation to be in place, by whom the information needs to be held and for how long, as well as which parties should have access to it.  It then details the required content of a Technical File, from order confirmation and technical calculations / drawings, through to commissioning reports / paperwork, specification details, and handover documents. 

ALLMI Technical Manager and Chair of the Association’s Technical Standards Committee (TSC), Keith Silvester, comments “This is yet another piece of valuable guidance produced by ALLMI’s TSC, which has been extremely busy in recent months.  Whilst the document is primarily aimed at installers of loader cranes, it is also of significance to owners and operators, persons conducting Thorough Examinations, and national enforcing authorities.  Development of the guidance stems from recurring industry enquiries and issues on this subject, which suggested that clarification was needed regarding exactly what a Technical File should contain.”  

He continues “We hope this document enables a consistent approach across the industry, and we would encourage all those involved with lorry loaders to contact ALLMI for a complimentary copy.”
