IS0 (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide
federation of national standards bodies (IS0 member bodies). The work
of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through IS0
technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for
which a technical committee has been established has the right to be
represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental
and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. IS0
collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission
(I EC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.
The main task of technical committees is to prepare International Stan-
dards, but in exceptional circumstances a technical committee may pro-
pose the publication of a Technical Report of one of the following types:
- type 1, when the required support cannot be obtained for the publi-
cation of an International Standard, despite repeated efforts;
- type 2, when the subject is still under technical development or where
for any other reason there is the future but not immediate possibility
of an agreement on an International Standard;
- type 3, when a technical committee has collected data of a different
kind from that which is normally published as an International Standard
(“state of the art”, for example).
Technical Reports of types 1 and 2 are subject to review within three years
of publication, to decide whether they can be transformed into Inter-
national Standards. Technical Reports of type 3 do not necessarily have to
be reviewed until the data they provide are considered to be no longer
valid or useful.
lSO/TR 12603, which is a Technical Report of type 2, was prepared by
Technical Committee lSO/TC 195, Building construction machinery and
This document is being issued in the Technical Report (type 2) series of
publications (according to subclause G.3.2.2 of part 1 of the lSO/lEC Di-
rectives, 1995) as a “prospective standard for provisional application” in
the field of building construction machinery and equipment because there
is an urgent need for guidance on how standards in this field should be
used to meet an identified need.

Building construction machinery and equipment -
1 Scope

This Technical Report specifies a classification of machines and equipment used in the building and construction

field. This field is divided into seven classes of traditional and specified use and the different machines are

classified accordingly. As far as possible, the sub-classes of the machines and equipment comply with both pub-

lished and draft European and International Standards.

Additionally, the classification tables show the IS0 and CEN Technical Committees and Working Groups respon-

sible for the International and European Standards related to each class.
