Description / Abstract:

This European Standard specifies the minimum requirements for the safe and independent access and use of lifts by a wide range of persons, including persons with disabilities. It is applicable to new passenger and goods passenger lifts according to EN 81-20. For other types of lifts, e.g. inclined lifts according to EN 81 22, this standard can usefully be taken as a basis. NOTE 1 – For guidance on solutions for increased accessibility and usability see Annex D. NOTE 2 – For the upgrading of accessibility of existing lifts in line with the recommendation of the European Commission dated 8th of June, 1995 (95/216/EC) concerning improvements to safety of existing lifts, see EN 81-82.
