This document applies to hand-held branchpipes. It deals with:
- safety requirements;
- performance requirements;
- test methods;
- classification and designation;
- instructions for use and maintenance;
- marking.
It is advised to read this document in conjunction with parts 2, 3 or 4.
This document does not apply to branchpipes covered by EN 671 series, foam branchpipes covered by EN 16712-3, powder branchpipes, or branchpipes with a maximum working pressure above 40 bar.
NOTE 1   The Working Group has thoroughly addressed and discussed the issue of electrical safety in relation to using water branchpipes. However, an electrical test is not incorporated into this document as international experience, as well as research (NFPA handbook, French research, etc) have shown that any "artificial" or "laboratory style" testing will not take into account poor visibility and other conditions present on any fire ground, nor the problem of estimating distances under these conditions. When fighting fires in or near electrical installations, the power is cut off as soon as possible (see the operating instructions, 8.1). Also, it is best practice to maintain a maximum possible safety distance (at least 1 m up to 1 000 V) and to use a spray jet with a minimum spray angle of 30 °.
NOTE 2   It is essential to take into account reaction forces before choosing and operating branchpipes.

This part of this European Standard applies to hand-held branchpipes. It deals with:
-   safety requirements;
-   performance requirements;
-   test methods;
-   classification and designation;
-   instructions for use and maintenance;
-   marking.
This standard should be read in conjunction with parts 2, 3 or 4.
This standard does not apply to branchpipes covered by EN 671, foam branchpipes, powder branchpipes, or branchpipes with a maximum working pressure above 40 bar.
NOTE 1   The Working Group has thoroughly addressed and discussed the issue of electrical safety in relation to using water branchpipes. However, an electrical test is not incorporated into this standard as international experience, as well as research (NFPA handbook, French research, etc) have shown that any "artificial" or "laboratory style" testing will not take into account poor visibility and other conditions present on any fireground, nor the problem of estimating distances under these conditions. The end user should be advised (through the operating instructions, see 8.1) that when fighting fires in or near electrical installations, the power should be cut off as soon as possible. Also, maintain a maximum possible safety distance (at least 1 m up to 1 000 V) and use a spray jet with a minimum spray angle of 30 °.
NOTE 2   Reaction forces should be taken into consideration before choosing and operating branchpipes.

This document deals with the technical requirements to minimise the risks of hazards listed in Clause 4 which can arise during the operation and/or maintenance of double acting hydraulic rescue tool systems, when carried out as intended by the manufacturer or his authorised representative.
All the safety requirements of this document apply to double acting hydraulic rescue tools manufactured after the date of publication.
Double acting hydraulic rescue tool systems are intended for use by the fire fighting and rescue services, principally for cutting through, spreading or pushing apart the structural parts of road vehicles, ships, trains, aircraft's and building structures involved in accidents. They consist, as defined in Clause 3 of a separate power pack, the tool[s] and the necessary interconnections and intended accessories.
NOTE 1   The aim is to assist whilst extracting the casualties or to create a working space for paramedical services taking the local conditions into account.
This document does not establish the additional requirements for:
a)   operation in severe conditions (e.g. extreme environmental conditions such as: temperatures outside the range -20 °C +55 °C, corrosive environment, tropical environment, contaminating environments, strong magnetic fields, potentially explosive atmospheres);
b)   the risk directly arising from the means provided for the portability, transportability and mobility of double-acting hydraulic rescue tools during periods of their operation.
NOTE 2   For the EU/EEA other Directives can be applicable to the equipment in the scope, for example the Electro Magnetic Compatibility Directive.
