SIST EN 12312-2:2014

EN 12312-2:2014 (E) 5 Introduction This European Standard specifies health and safety requirements, as well as some functional and performance requirements, for catering vehicles intended for cabin re-supply and servicing or loading and unloading of catering equipment and supplies on all aircraft types commonly in service in civil air transport. The minimum essential criteria are considered to be of primary importance in providing safe, serviceable, economical, and practical catering vehicles. Deviations from the recommended criteria should occur only after careful consideration, extensive testing, risk assessment and thorough service evaluation have shown alternative methods or conditions to be satisfactory. Such deviations are outside the scope of this standard and a manufacturer should be able to demonstrate an equivalent level of protection. This European Standard is a Type C standard as stated in EN ISO 12100. The machinery concerned and the extent to which hazards, hazardous situations and hazardous events are covered are indicated in the scope of this document. When provisions of this Type C standard are different from those stated in Type A or B standards, the provisions of this Type C standard take precedence over the provisions of the other standards, for machines that have been designed and built according to the provisions of this Type C standard. Deviations from requirements do not fall within the presumption of conformity given by the standard. SIST EN 12312-2:2014

EN 12312-2:2014 (E) 6 1 Scope This European Standard specifies the technical requirements to minimize the hazards listed in Clause 4 which can arise during the commissioning, the operation and the maintenance of catering vehicles when used as intended, including misuse reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer, when carried out in accordance with the specifications given by the manufacturer or his authorized representative. It also takes into account some requirements recognized as essential by authorities, aircraft and ground support equipment (GSE) manufacturers as well as airlines and handling agencies. This European Standard applies to self-propelled catering vehicles, with seated driver, equipped with a liftable van body. This European Standard may be applied to catering vehicles used for other purposes provided that a suitable risk assessment is carried out to identify additional hazards or limitations in the requirements of this standard for a particular application. Similar vehicles e.g. cleaning equipment, equipment used for the exchange of aircraft seats, are also covered by this European Standard. This European Standard does not establish requirements for noise and vibration. NOTE EN 1915–3 and EN 1915–4 provide the general GSE noise and vibration requirements. This European Standard does not apply to pneumatic systems. This European Standard does not apply to unmodified automotive parts approved for public vehicles in the EU and EFTA., when used on a catering vehicle for the purpose for which they are designed. This part of EN 12312 is not applicable to catering vehicles which are manufactured before the date of publication of this standard by CEN. This part of EN 12312 when used in conjunction with EN 1915-1, EN 1915-2, EN 1915-3 and EN 1915-4 provides the requirements for catering vehicles. 2 Normative references The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and are indispensable for its application.

NOTE See 6.4, Instructions, for listing by the manufacturer of the aircraft types and doors the vehicle is intended to serve. Where the loading platform design includes lateral movement it shall be of a minimum of 0,2 m. The loading platform shall also meet the requirements of 5.5.4. 5.4.3 Continuous flooring shall be provided between the guard-rails / side panels, when in their docking and operating positions. The floor shall meet the requirements of 5.1.6 and be provided with lighting in accordance with 5.1.7. 5.4.4 The loading platform shall be constructed so that when in the driver's cabin the driver is able to see the leading edge throughout its operating range. 5.4.5 For design of the loading platform, the specifications in 5.2.3 and 5.2.4 shall be taken into account. 5.4.6 Telescopic parts of the loading platform and guard-rails / side panels shall have a minimum extension of 0,5 m. 5.4.7 Manual effort for the adjustment of movable parts shall not exceed 62 N. If powered movements are used, they shall be controlled from the upper control panel. The maximum force exerted onto the aircraft by telescopic parts of the loading platform and guard-rails / side panels shall not exceed 400 N. Where the max-imum force caused by movement of the aircraft exceeds 400 N, these telescopic parts shall give way. 5.4.8 The leading edge of the loading platform shall be designed so that damage to the aircraft is avoided, preferably by application of a full width bumper designed to protect the aircraft, that: a) is of a non-marking semi-soft material, b) ensures a minimum 60 mm crushing capability, c) is designed to minimize any force exerted onto the aircraft. NOTE See ISO 6966-2 for additional aircraft protection guidance. It is recommended that the static force equivalent does not exceed 1 500 N distributed over the length, or 1 500 N on any 100 mm x 100 mm contact area. SIST EN 12312-2:2014

EN 12312-2:2014 (E) 12 The aircraft interface device may include a contact detection feature able to provide an electrical signal when contact with the aircraft is achieved at any point and which can be used to stop movement. In this case, the related interlocking systems shall achieve Performance Level “b” according to EN ISO 13849-1:2008. 5.4.9 Loading platforms shall be designed so that damage to the aircraft door, which is open during load-ing/unloading, is avoided. This can be achieved by either: a) leaving a gap underneath the open aircraft door to allow for aircraft movement during loading. All safety requirements in 5.4 and 5.5 shall be met; or b) a system, e.g. initiated by a sensor or safety shoe, which prevents the aircraft door from settling upon the loading platform during servicing of the aircraft (emergency auto-levelling). In this case, the interlocking systems shall achieve Performance Level “b” according to EN ISO 13849-1:2008. 5.4.10 Where a screen is used at the front end of the van body to support the loading platform when in its lowered position, it shall present a continuous vertical surface. It shall also be adjustable to prevent, as shown at Annex B, a lip forming that could trap objects between the van floor and the rear edge of the loading plat-form. The gap between the screen and the forward edge of the van body's floor shall not exceed 15 mm. 5.4.11
