This document applies to mobile non-sewer-connected toilet cabins system.
It specifies the requirements for services related to the provision of toilet cabins and the relevant requirements for toilet cabins and sanitary products, taking into account comfort, hygiene, health and safety.
It specifies the minimum quality requirements for toilet cabins and sanitary products, as well as the extent of on-site service and the required disinfection and the number of toilet cabins to be provided. It also determines the frequency of use, the maximum number of uses per toilet cabins, the locations and the intervals for on-site service or disposal of faecal water.
This document is applicable to the framework of activities carried out in the following sectors:
—   construction and extractive industries, opencast or underground;
—   public events and recreational activities, festivals and concerts;
—   agriculture, labour camps and temporary work camps;
—   beaches;
—   emergencies;
—   military tactical and training exercises.
There are other types of mobile toilet cabins which are not connected to a sewage system (e.g. dry toilets, composting toilets, incinerations toilets, vacuum toilets, or other technologies and processes) and which are not covered by this document.
This document establishes a system to ensure that mobile sanitation facilities for waste disposal are available not only in the workplaces but wherever there are no waste disposal systems connected to a sewerage network.
This document is directed at manufacturers, services providers' companies and publics or private cabin hirers of toilet cabins not connected to a sewage network.

This document defines the standard for exchanging stationary waste collection container information between the collection container system and the back-office systems.
This document defines the way to exchange data between the "Communication Management System" of the collection container and the "Back-Office Systems".
The exchange of data between the "Collection Container Systems" and the "Communication Management Systems" or the "Back-Office Systems" is excluded.
This document targets two streams of information in the waste processing industry:
-   The processing of transactions and system information for the deposit of waste from the communication management systems to the back office systems.
-   The processing of authorization and configuration information from the back-office systems to the communication management systems.

This document lists the general requirements to define levels of performance and acceptance for street cleaning and waste management services and to take into account to draw up and to operate service contracts for a better result in terms of qualitative and quantitative performances definition and survey, clearing agreements in case of deviations, economic optimisation, environmental sustainability and pollution prevention.
When the client isn’t a public administration but a private customer, purchasing street cleaning and/or municipal waste management services directly from the service provider, the standard is applicable, when appropriate; in this case the term “Administration” includes also these private customers.
This document is intended for public authorities and other bodies (or actors) requiring street cleaning and/or waste management services as well as for public and private waste management companies offering services of street cleaning and/or of waste and recycling operations.

The target of this standard is to provide the different actors of the services all the elements to foresee, to fix or to offer for the carrying out of each service of waste management, street cleaning and waste collection and transport, and for the remedying of the unavoidable defaults of the fulfilment of the contracts, restricting deviations in a given incidence and putting right them within time and manners prearranged. Even if the new standard might contain a section of recommended values of the quantitative and qualitative parameters of various services, the main target is to fix a methodology to describe, to survey and to appraise services and possible defaults. Consequently the new standard will cover: - the definitions of the various services, - quantitative and qualitative parameters of the services and the way to measure them, - definition of the minimum level of the service to be let on contract, - parameters to verify for the fulfilment of the contract, - methods for survey and gauge these parameters, - the list of standards that the different equipments used have to comply with, - methods of technical and economical evaluation of the deviations from the contract that are not remedied, or that are not remedied in time by the contractor.

This European Standard specifies the method for measuring the noise emission, which is a significant hazard of refuse collection vehicles (RCVs).
Its goal is to obtain, on one hand, the emission sound pressure level at the operator’s position(s) and, on the other hand, the sound power level of the RCV during waste collection. It specifies a standardized procedure for measurement and later comparison of RCVs noise emission, consisting of four operating conditions: chassis operation, compaction operation, lifting, tilting and lowering operation of a container and dumping of specified waste into the RCV.
Together with information concerning other parameters, the test results obtained in accordance with this standard are also applicable to the evaluation of the hazards generated by noise from RCVs.
This standard addresses the uncertainties due to measurement procedures.
This standard deals with the noise measurement conditions for the types of RCVs defined and described in the standards of the EN 1501 series.

-   operation in severe conditions (e.g. extreme environmental conditions such as: temperatures below –10 °C and above +40 °C, corrosive environment, tropical environment);
-   operation subject to special rules (e.g. potentially explosive atmospheres, contaminating environments);
-   static electricity problems;
-   transportation of passengers, lifting of persons;
-   loading by crane;
-   loading by a satellite vehicle;
-   containers other than those manufactured according to EN 840, EN 12574 and EN 13071;
-   handling of loads the nature of which could lead to dangerous situations (e.g. hot wastes, acids and bases, radioactive materials, especially fragile loads, explosives);
-   hazards occurring during construction, transportation, commissioning, decommissioning;
-   hazards occurring in relation to traffic on public roads;
-   wind velocity in excess of 75 km/h;
-   direct contact with foodstuffs;
-   hazards due to the noise of the side loaded RCV.

This standard applies to front loaded refuse collection vehicles, as defined in 3.2, and specifies their technical requirements.
This standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to the front loaded RCV, when it is used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4).
This standard part 3 describes and gives the requirements of the front loaded RCV and the associated lifting device(s) and refers to part 4 of this series of standards for the noise test code.
Examples for standard types of front loaded refuse collection vehicles are given in Annex C.
This European Standard is not applicable to:
   operation in severe conditions (e.g. extreme environmental conditions such as: temperatures below –25 °C and above 40 °C, corrosive environment, tropical environment, lightning, wind velocity in excess of 75 km/h);
   operation subject to special rules (e.g. potentially explosive atmospheres, contaminating environments);
   transportation of passengers, lifting of persons;
   loading by crane;
   loading by satellite vehicle;
   containers other than defined in EN 840-1 to -4, EN 12574-1 to -3 and type B of EN 13071;
