1.1   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.
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 Directive, and not related to the safety of the lift, escalator or moving walk, such as lighting apparatus, communication apparatus, etc.
1.2   This document does not apply to electromagnetic environments such as:
-   radio-transmitter stations,
-   railways and metros,

This document gives requirements in order to ensure the safety of persons when using lifts which are subject to different expected levels of vandalism:
-   Category 1, where lifts are in general public, in locations which are unobserved and limited acts of vandalism might occur, e.g. an enclosed lift in a shopping center;
-   Category 2, where lifts are in general public, in locations which are unobserved where stronger acts of vandalism can be expected e.g. a lift in a public car park.
NOTE   See Annex A for further information with regard to the selection of the vandal resistance category to be applied.
This document is not applicable to lifts installed before the date of its publication.

This document specifies the fire resistance requirements for lift landing doors which can be exposed to a fire from the landing side. This document applies to all types of lift landing doors used as a means of access to lifts in buildings and which are intended to provide a fire barrier to the spread of fire via the lift well.
It also specifies the method of testing and classification of fire resistance of lift landing doors. The test method is only valid for furnaces where the door is mounted in a vertical position. The test method allows for the measurement of integrity and if required the measurement of radiation and thermal insulation.
This document covers the hazard of fire spreading to the lift well during a defined period of time. The fire resistance requirements are expressed in terms of integrity (E), insulation (EI) and radiation (EW).
This document do not cover other technical requirements in addition to fire resistance requirements. The other technical requirements are specified in relevant product standards referring to this document.
This document refers to CO2 as means of tracing the propagation of fire. The document does not cover hazards due to emission of gasses.
This document is not applicable to lift landing doors installed in lifts before the date of its publication.

1.2   In addition to the requirements of this document, supplementary requirements shall be considered in special cases (potentially explosive atmosphere, extreme climate conditions, seismic conditions, transporting dangerous goods, etc.).
1.3   This document does not cover:
a)   lifts with drives other than those stated in 1.1;
b)   installation of electric lifts in existing buildings to the extent that space does not permit;

-   existing perforate walls of the lift well;
-   reduction in available well are leading to reduced distance between car, counterweight or balancing weight;
-   counterweight or balancing weight in a separate existing well;
-   reduced building dimensions and clearances leading to:
-   reductions in available space for headroom and pit;
-   reduced car roof balustrade dimensions;
-   reduced height of sill apron;
-   reduced height of machine and/or pulley room;
-   reduced available area for access door/trap door;
-   reduction in available height of landing doors.
