Introduction

A reliable anchor device is one of the essential components in a personal fall protection system.

This Technical Specification, which gives minimum performance requirements, is intended to act as a

complementary specification for existing European Standards covering components used in personal fall

protection systems.

The scope and the requirements are based on the philosophy that anchor devices are rated to sustain the

maximum dynamic force generated in a fall from a height by the mass of more than one person, including any

equipment carried. The static strength tests are based on a minimum factor of safety of two. To allow for

foreseeable misuse of equipment, this Technical Specification provides requirements and test methods for

anchor devices, used in personal fall protection equipment in accordance with EN 363, even if their intended

use is for restraint.

It is essential that anchor devices are designed and manufactured so that, in the foreseeable conditions of use

for which they are intended, the user is able to perform the risk-related activity while being appropriately

protected. Manufacturers may wish to bear these points in mind when deciding on the actual performance of

their products.
