It contains requirements for the patient’s compartment in terms of the working environment, ergonomic design and the safety of the crew and patients.This European Standard does not cover the training of the staff which is the responsibility of the authority/authorities in the country where the ambulance is to be registered.
This European Standard is applicable to road ambulances capable of transporting at least one person on a stretcher and excludes the transportation of hospital beds.
This standard also specifies requirements for ambulances intended to carry transport incubator systems.
The European Standard covers the specific requirements of each type of road ambulance which are
designated according to the patient condition e.g. patient transport road ambulance types A1, A2, B and C.
This European Standard gives general requirements for medical devices carried in road ambulances and used therein and outside hospitals and clinics in situations where the ambient conditions can differ from normal indoor conditions.

This European Standard deals with the technical requirements to minimize the risks of hazards listed in Annex A which can arise during the operation and/or maintenance of double acting hydraulic rescue tool systems, when carried out as intended by the manufacturer or his authorized representative.
All the safety requirements of this document apply to double acting hydraulic rescue tools manufactured after the date of publication.
Double acting hydraulic rescue tool systems are intended for use by the firefighting and rescue services, principally for cutting through, spreading or pushing apart the structural parts of road vehicles, ships, trains, aircraft and building structures involved in accidents. They consist of a separate power pack, the tool[s] and the necessary interconnections and intended accessories, as defined in Clause 3 – Terms and definitions.
NOTE 1   The aim is to assist whilst extracting the casualties or to create a working space for paramedical services taking the local conditions into account.
This European Standard does not establish the additional requirements for:
a)   operation in severe conditions (e.g. extreme environmental conditions such as: temperatures outside the range –20 °C +55 °C, corrosive environment, tropical environment, contaminating environments, strong magnetic fields, potentially explosive atmospheres);
b)   the risk directly arising from the means provided for the portability, transportability and mobility of double-acting hydraulic rescue tools during periods of their operation.
NOTE 2   For the EU/EEA other Directives can be applicable to the equipment in the scope, for example the Electro Magnetic Compatibility Directive.

This covers a range of devices, from relatively simple ventilators intended, primarily, for use with a face mask and for limited periods (e.g. gas powered ventilators) through to devices for pre-planned longer term use. !This includes gas-powered resuscitators, which are generally used by first responders."
This part does not cover operator-powered ventilators (i.e. manual resuscitators).
Ventilators aboard aircraft are likely to be subject to additional requirements and national/international regulations.
Additional parts, e.g. concerning lung ventilators for critical care (see EN 794-1), home care ventilators (see EN 794-2), operator powered resuscitators and recent developments such as jet and very high frequency ventilation and oscillation are published or under consideration.
