This document specifies the immunity performance criteria and test levels for apparatus used in lifts, escalators and moving walks which are intended to be permanently installed in buildings including the basic safety requirements in regard to their electromagnetic environment. These levels represent essential EMC requirements. This document refers to EM conditions as existing in residential, office and industrial buildings. This document addresses commonly known EMC related hazards and hazardous situations relevant to lifts, escalators and moving walks when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the lift installer or escalator and/or moving walk manufacturer. It is assumed that no ports connected to safety circuit only are rated at currents greater than 100 amps. It is assumed that mobile telephones and radio transmitters used at frequencies and power of that stated in Table 1 are not placed within 200 mm distance from safety circuit(s). However: — performance criteria and test levels for apparatus/assembly of apparatus used in general function circuits do not cover situations with an extremely low probability of occurrence; — this document does not apply to other apparatus already proven to be in conformity to the EMC national regulation, and not related to the safety of the lift, escalator or moving walk, such as lighting apparatus, communication apparatus, etc. This document does not apply to electromagnetic environments such as: — radio transmitter stations; — railways and metros; — heavy industrial plant; — electricity power stations; which need additional investigations. This document is not applicable to apparatus which were manufactured before the date of its publication.

1.1   This European Standard gives rules for improving existing lifts with the aim of reaching today's state of the art of general safety.
NOTE   Due to situations such as the building design etc. it may not be possible in all cases to reach today's state of the art.
1.2   This standard has taken into consideration safety requirements of the directives listed in the Bibliography and of EN 81 series of the safety standards for lifts.
NOTE   The EN 81-series of standards for particular applications can be used as a basis for improving safety of existing lifts, providing they have been officially accepted. However, not all clauses may apply or be "reasonably practicable" (see note to 1.3).
1.3   It is the responsibility of each national authority to apply this standard and to determine its own programme of implementation in a step by step process (see Annex A (normative)) in a reasonable and practicable way based on :
¾ the level of risk (e.g. extreme, high, medium, low) ;
¾ social and economic considerations.
NOTE   "Reasonably practicable" is defined as follows : "In deciding what is reasonably practicable the seriousness of risk to injury should be weighted against the difficulty and cost of removing or reducing that risk. In considering the cost no allowance should be made for the size, nature or profitability of the business concerned. Where the difficulty and costs are high, and a careful assessment of the risk shows it to be comparatively unimportant, action may not need to be taken. On the other hand where the risk is high, action should be taken at whatever cost".
1.4   This standard includes the improvement of safety for :
a) users of passenger and goods passenger lifts ;
b) lift maintenance and inspection personnel ;
c) persons outside the well, machine room and the pulley room (if any) ;
d) any authorised persons.

This document: a) uses safety integrity levels (SIL) for specifying the target failure rate for the safety functions to be implemented by the PESSRAE; b) specifies the requirements for achieving safety integrity for a function but does not specify who is responsible for implementing and maintaining the requirements (for example, designers, suppliers, owner/operating company, contractor); this responsibility is assigned to different parties according to safety planning and national regulations; c) applies to PE systems used in escalator and moving walk applications that meet the minimum requirements of a recognized escalator and moving walk standards, such as EN 115, ASME A17.1/CSA B44 or The Japan Building Standard Law Enforcement Order For Elevator and Escalator; d) defines the relationship between this document and IEC 61508 and defines the relationship between this document and ISO 22200; e) outlines the relationship between escalator and moving walk safety functions and their safe-state conditions; f) applies to phases and activities that are specific to design of hardware and software but not the phases and activities which occur post design, for example sourcing and manufacturing; h) provides requirements relating to the hardware and software safety validation; i) establishes the safety integrity levels for specific escalator and moving walk safety functions; j) specifies techniques/measures required for achieving the specified safety integrity levels; k) defines a maximum level of performance (SIL 3) which can be achieved for a PESSRAE according to this document and defines a minimum level of performance (SIL 1). 1.4 This document does not cover: a) hazards arising from the PE systems equipment itself such as electric shock etc.; b) the concept of fail-safe that can be of value when the failure modes are well defined and the level of complexity is relatively low. The concept of fail-safe was considered inappropriate because of the full range of complexity of PESSRAE that are within the scope of this document; c) other relevant requirements necessary for the complete application of a PESSRAE in an escalator and moving walk safety function, such as system integration specifications, temperature and humidity, the mechanical construction, mounting and labelling of switches, actuators, or sensors that contain PESSRAE. d) foreseeable misuse involving security threats related to malevolent or unauthorized action. This document can be used in cases where a security threat analysis needs to be considered, provided that the specified SIL has been reassessed.
