The WG18 meeting in Stockholm

EN 12999 Update

ALLMI Technical Manager, Keith Silvester, attended the recent CEN meeting of Working Group (WG) 18 in Stockholm, which is responsible for developing EN 12999.

He comments “WG18 is the Committee responsible for developing EN 12999, the European product design Standard for loader cranes. The meeting in Stockholm looked at final edits to the draft of the latest revision of EN 12999, prior to it being submitted to CEN/TC 147 for Formal Vote to publish.”

The revised version of EN 12999 looks to contain 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. Look out for further updates as the Standard reaches publication.
