ISO 25745-2:2015 specifies a method to estimate energy consumption based on measured values, calculation, or simulation, on an annual basis for traction, hydraulic and positive drive lifts on a single unit basis, and an energy classification system for new, existing, and modernized traction, hydraulic, and positive drive lifts on a single unit basis.
It applies to passenger and goods passenger lifts with rated speeds greater than 0,15 m/s and only considers the energy performance during the operational portion of the life cycle of the lifts. For other types of lifts (e.g. service lifts, lifting platforms, etc.), it can be taken as a reference.
It does not cover energy aspects, which affect the measurements, calculations, and simulations, such as the following: hoistway lighting; heating and cooling equipment in the lift car; machine room lighting; machine room heating, ventilation, and air conditioning; non-lift display systems, CCTV security cameras, etc.; non-lift monitoring systems (e.g. building management systems, etc.); effect of lift group dispatching on energy consumption; environmental conditions; consumption through the power sockets; lifts whose travel includes an express zone (an express zone is unlikely to affect the average car load but can significantly affect the average travel distance).

ISO 25745-3:2015 specifies generic tools for estimating energy consumption of escalators and moving walks, and    a consistent method for energy performance classification of existing, modernized, or new escalators and moving walks.
It considers the energy performance during the operational portion of the life cycle of escalators and moving walks. It does not cover energy consumption and classification of the ancillary equipment, such as the following:
a)    lighting with the exception of comb plate lighting, step gap lighting, and traffic light (comb plate lighting, step gap lighting, and traffic light are considered essential for the operation of the equipment and are therefore not defined as ancillary equipment);
b)    cooling and heating and machine room ventilation;
c)    alarm devices and emergency battery supplies equipment, etc.;
d)    environmental conditions;
e)    consumption through the power sockets.
There can be other electrical loads not associated with the escalator or moving walk, and not included.
ISO 25745-3:2015 considers all escalators and inclined moving walks up to a rise of 8 m and horizontal moving walks with a length up to 60 m (this represents about 85 % of worldwide installed units).

1.1   This European Standard specifies the immunity performance criteria and test levels for apparatus used in lifts, escalators and moving walks which are intended to be permanently installed in buildings including the basic safety requirements in regard to their electromagnetic environment. These levels represent essential EMC requirements.
The standard refers to EM conditions as existing in residential, office and industrial buildings.
This standard addresses commonly known EMC related hazards and hazardous situations relevant to lifts, escalators and moving walks when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the lift installer or escalator and/or moving walk manufacturer.
However:
-   performance criteria and test levels for apparatus/assembly of apparatus used in general function circuits do not cover situations with an extremely low probability of occurrence;
-   this standard does not apply to other apparatus already proven to be in conformity to the EMC Directive, and not related to the safety of the lift, escalator or moving walk, such as lighting apparatus, communication apparatus, etc.
1.2   This European Standard does not apply to electromagnetic environments such as:
-   radio-transmitter stations,
-   railways and metros,
-   heavy industrial plant,
-   electricity power station,
which need additional investigations.
1.3   This standard is not applicable to apparatus which were manufactured before the date of its publication as EN 12016.

ISO 14798:2009 establishes general principles and specific procedures for assessing risk. Its purpose is to provide a process for making decisions relevant to the safety of lifts during the
       design, construction, installation and servicing of lifts, lift components and systems,
       development of generic procedures for the use, operation, testing, compliance verification and servicing of lifts, and
       development of technical specifications and standards affecting the safety of lifts.
While the examples given in ISO 14798:2009 refer primarily to risks of harm to persons, the risk assessment procedure it specifies can be equally effective for assessing other types of risk relevant to lifts, such as the risk of damage to property and environment.
