This document applies to new passenger lifts and goods passenger lifts with all types of drives. However, it may be used as a basis to improve the safety of existing passenger and goods passenger lifts.
This document does not apply to:
-   lifts which remain in use in the event of fire e.g. firefighters lifts as defined in EN 81-72:2015;
-   lifts used for the evacuation of a building.

Sicherheitsregeln für die Konstruktion und den Einbau von Aufzügen - Besondere Anwendungen für Personen- und Lastenaufzüge - Teil 73: Verhalten von Aufzügen im Brandfall

Dieses Dokument legt die besonderen Maßnahmen und Sicherheitsregeln fest, um ein bestimmtes Verhalten von Aufzügen im Brandfall sicherzustellen, dass auf übermittelte Brandmeldesignale an die Aufzugssteuerung basiert.
Dieses Dokument gilt für neue Personen- und Lastenaufzüge und alle Antriebsarten. Sie kann jedoch auch sachdienlich zur Erhöhung der Sicherheit bei bestehenden Personen- und Lastenaufzügen angewendet werden.
Dieses Dokument gilt nicht für
-   Aufzüge, die im Brandfall in Betrieb bleiben, z. B. Feuerwehraufzüge nach EN 81-72;
-   Aufzüge, die für die Evakuierung eines Gebäudes eingesetzt werden.

Introduction
This document is a type C standard as stated in EN ISO 12100:2010.

The lifts concerned and the extent to which hazards, hazardous situations and events are covered are

indicated in the scope of this document.

When provisions of this type C standard are different from those which are stated in type A or B

standards, the provisions of this type C standard take precedence over the provisions of the other

standards, for lifts that have been designed and built according to the provisions of this type C standard.

The function described in this document relates to the automatic return of the car(s) to a designated

landing and the removal of the lift(s) from service.
This document deals with

a) reducing the risk of passengers being trapped in a car in the event of a fire in a building,

b) helping the firefighters/rescue teams to check that the lift contains no trapped passengers since it

will be finally parked at a designated landing,
c) reducing the risk of passengers in the car being exposed to fire and smoke.
The contents of this document are based on the following assumptions:

— recall means initiates the signal to the lift causing a specific reaction of the lift;

— building designers, architects or planners give careful consideration to specifying fire recall to lifts

as this document;

— there is a clear separation between the functioning of the recall means and the lift control system;

and
— recall means is operating as intended.

This document assumes that negotiation has taken place between the building designer and the lift

installer on the following:
— type of recall means and its interface (see EN 81-20:2020, 0.4.2);
— type and protection of switch in case of manual recall device;
— number and location of designated landing(s);
— suitable maintenance and verification plan is implemented; and
— whether the lift parks with doors open or closed at the designated landing.

1 Scope

This document specifies the special provisions and safety rules describing the behaviour of lifts in the

event of fire in a building, on the basis of a recall signal(s) to the lift(s) control system.

This document applies to new passenger lifts and goods passenger lifts with all types of drives.

However, it may be used as a basis to improve the safety of existing passenger and goods passenger

lifts.
This document does not apply to:

— lifts that remain in use in the event of fire, e.g. firefighters lifts as defined in EN 81-72:2020,

— lifts used for the evacuation of a building.
