EU Cableway Directive Now in Force

Chapter IV: Installations

The provisions of this chapter are primarily relevant for the national authorities in EU member countries. They are called upon to lay down approvals procedures for ropeway construction and commissioning designed to ensure that only those ropeways are built and go into service that are planned and constructed in compliance with the essential safety requirements.

Chapter V: Safeguards

Articles 14 and 15 define procedures to be followed by member states in cases where a safety hazard is identified in spite of due fulfillment of the formal requirements, and in cases of con-compliance of safety components and subsystems for which a declaration of conformity has been issued.
