Lift Inspections and Audits

Helping you achieve compliance with European regulations (CE Marking) for a passport to your key markets

Business Challenge

The market for lifts and their components is becoming truly global. Across the European Union (EU), the installation of new lifts is subject to the 95/16/EC directive, which defines precise rules for CE Marking, based on a number of health and safety requirements. 

In the EU and many other markets, a lift cannot be put into service without having gone through a conformity assessment process carried out by a notified body. This process encompasses both the equipment and its components. It conditions the attribution of the compliance declaration and the authorization to apply the CE Marking.
