EN12999 - Draft for Public Comment

The latest revision to EN12999, the European product design Standard for loader cranes, has recently been released as a Draft for Public Comment.

With the Standard being due for publication in 2020, the Draft contains amendments covering a range of areas, including safety systems on remote controls, stability testing, and improved mapping against the Essential Health and Safety Requirements of the Machinery Directive.

‘CEN/TC 147/WG 18 - Loader Cranes’, the Working Group responsible for the Standard’s development, will be reviewing all feedback during its next meeting in June, at which an ALLMI delegate will be representing the UK’s interests.

For a copy of the Draft Standard, please contact ALLMI, and look out for further updates on this important issue.
