EU Cableway Directive Now in Force
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.
