Applications ferroviaires - Wagons-citernes - Partie 7 : Plates-formes et échelles

Cette Norme européenne s'applique aux échelles, plates-formes et passerelles montées sur les wagons citernes pourvus d'équipement en haut de la citerne. Elle ne s'applique pas aux plates-formes de franchissement et aux marchepieds lorsque ceux-ci font l'objet d'une fiche UIC. Elle définit les dimensions essentielles pour les constructeurs et les exploitants de ces wagons-citernes et tient compte des recommandations de construction et de sécurité applicables et en vigueur.
