1.1   This document specifies the safety rules for permanently installed new passenger or goods passenger lifts, with traction, positive or hydraulic drive, serving defined landing levels, having a car designed for the transportation of persons or persons and goods, suspended by ropes or chains or jacks and moving between guide rails inclined not more than 15° to the vertical.
1.2   In addition to the requirements of this document, supplementary requirements shall be considered in special cases (use of lifts by persons with disabilities, in case of fire, potentially explosive atmosphere, extreme climate conditions, seismic conditions, transporting dangerous goods, etc.).
1.3   This document does not cover:
a)   lifts with:
1)   drive systems other than those stated in 1.1;
2)   rated speed ≤ 0,15 m/s;
b)   hydraulic lifts:
1)   with a rated speed exceeding 1 m/s;
2)   where the setting of the pressure relief valve exceeds 50 MPa (5.9.3.5.3);
c)   new passenger or goods passenger lifts in existing buildings  ) where in some circumstances due to limitations enforced by building constraints, some requirements of EN 81 20 cannot be met and EN 81 21 should be considered;
d)   lifting appliances, such as paternosters, mine lifts, theatrical lifts, appliances with automatic caging, skips, lifts and hoists for building and public works sites, ships' hoists, platforms for exploration or drilling at sea, construction and maintenance appliances or lifts in wind turbines;
e)   important modifications (see Annex C) to a lift installed before this standard is brought into application;
f)   safety during operations of transport, erection, repairs, and dismantling of lifts.
However, this standard may usefully be taken as a basis.
Noise and vibrations are not dealt with in this standard as they are not found at levels which could be considered as harmful with regard to the safe use and maintenance of the lift (see also 0.4.1).
1.4   This document is not applicable to passenger and goods passenger lifts which are installed before the date of its publication as EN.
2) Existing building is a building which is used or was already used before the order for the lift was placed. A building whose internal structure is completely renewed is considered as a new building.

This European Standard applies to alarm systems for all types of passenger and goods passenger lifts, in particular those covered in the EN 81 series.
This European Standard also deals with the minimum information to be provided as part of the instruction manual related to maintenance and the rescue service.
This European Standard deals with the following significant hazard relevant to lifts when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the installer/manufacturer:
-   entrapment of users due to the lift not working properly.
This European Standard is not applicable to alarm systems intended to be used to call for help in other cases, e.g. heart attack, seeking information.
This European Standard is applicable to alarm systems used for lifts manufactured and installed after the date of publication by CEN of this standard. However, this European Standard can be taken into account when applied to existing lifts.
EN 81 70 gives additional requirements for persons with disabilities (e.g. inductive loop, alarm button).

1.1   This standard specifies the safety rules for the construction and installation of permanently installed new electric service lifts with traction or positive drive, or hydraulic service lifts defined as lifting equipment, serving defined landing levels, having a car, the interior of which is regarded as inaccessible to persons on account of its dimensions and means of construction, suspended by ropes or chains or supported by a ram and moving between rigid vertical guide rails or guide rails whose inclination to the vertical does not exceed 15° and driven electrically or hydraulically.
This standard covers service lifts with rated load not exceeding 300 kilogrammes and not intended to move persons.
1.2   In addition to the requirements of this standard supplementary requirements shall be considered in special cases (potentially explosive atmosphere, extreme climate conditions, seismic conditions, transporting dangerous goods, etc.).
1.3   This standard does not cover:
a)   service lifts with drives other than stated in 1.1;
b)   important modifications (see annex E) to a service lift installed before this standard is brought into application;
c)   lifting appliances, such as paternosters, mines lifts, theatrical lifts, appliances with automatic caging, skips and hoists for building and public works sites, ships’ hoists, platforms for exploration or drilling at sea, construction and maintenance appliances;
d)   installations where the inclination of the guide rails to the vertical exceeds 15°;
e)   safety during transport, installation, repairs and dismantling of service lifts;
f)   the use of glass for the walls of the well, for the car and for the landing doors including the vision panels.
However, this standard may usefully be taken as a basis.
Noise and vibrations are not dealt with in this standard because these are not relevant to the safe use of the service lift.
Fire propagation is not dealt with in this standard.

This document specifies the safety rules related to passenger and goods/passenger lifts installed in existing buildings where limitations enforced by certain building constraints mean that some requirements of EN 81-20:2020 cannot be met.
It addresses the following constraints and gives requirements for alternative solutions:
-   existing perforate walls of the lift well;
-   reduction in available well are leading to reduced distance between car, counterweight or balancing weight;
-   counterweight or balancing weight in a separate existing well;
-   reduced building dimensions and clearances leading to:
-   reductions in available space for headroom and pit;
-   reduced car roof balustrade dimensions;
-   reduced height of sill apron;
-   reduced height of machine and/or pulley room;
-   reduced available area for access door/trap door;
-   reduction in available height of landing doors.

1.1 This standard specifies the safety rules for the construction and installation of permanently installed new hydraulic lifts serving defined landing levels, having a car designed for the transportation of persons or persons and goods, suspended by jacks, ropes or chains and moving between guide rails inclined not more than 15ø to the vertical.  1.2 In addiction to the requirements of this standard supplementary requirements shall be considered in special cases (potentially explosive atmosphere, extreme climate conditions, seismic conditions, transporting dangerous goods, etc.).  1.3 This standard does not cover:  a) lifts with drives other than those stated in 1.1; b) installation of hydraulic lifts in existing buildings 2) to the extent that space does not permit; c) important modifications (see annex E) to a lift installed before this standard is brought into application; d) lifting appliances, such as paternosters, mine lifts, theatrical lifts, appliances with automatic caging, skips, lifts and hoists for building and public works sites, ships' hoists, platforms for exploration or drilling at sea, construction and maintenance appliances; e) installations where the inclination of the guide rails to the vertical exceeds 15ø; f) safety during transport, installation, repairs, and dismanting of lifts; g) hydraulic lifts with a rated speed exceeding 1 m/s.  However, this standard may usefully be taken as a basis.  Noise and vibrations are not dealt with in this standard because these are not relevant to the safe use of the lift.  1.4 This standard does not specify the additional requirements necessary for the use of lifts in case of fire.  2) Existing building is a building which is used or was already used before the order for the lift was placed. A building whose internal structure is completely renewed is considered as a new building.
