|Publication Date:||1 March 2017|
|ICS Code (Other standards related to road engineering):||93.080.99|
|ICS Code (Special purpose vehicles):||43.160|
This European Standard specifies the common safety requirements for road operation machinery.
This European Standard deals with the significant hazards common to road operation machinery, when they are used as intended and under the conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer associated with the whole life time of the machine (transportation, travel and work mode mounting and dismounting of equipment/attachment
NOTE 1 The requirements specified in this part of the standard are common to two or more families of road operation machinery.
This European Standard gives safety requirements for all types of road operation machinery and should be used in conjunction with parts 2 to 4-1. These machine specific parts do not repeat the requirements from part 1 but supplement or modify the requirements for the type of road operation machinery in question. Therefore, additional specific requirements are given in separate parts of this standard.
This European Standard applies to:
a) road surface cleaning machines (as currently defined in EN 15429-1);
b) winter maintenance equipment (as defined in groups 1 and 2 of EN 15144:2007);
c) road service area maintenance machines for grass/brush cutting (as defined in EN 15436-1:2008)
This European Standard deals with:
- equipment permanently mounted on carrier vehicles;
- interchangeable equipment;
- self-propelled machinery with an integrated specially designed chassis;
- trailed machines;
This European Standard deals with all significant hazards identified through a risk assessment pertinent to the machines within the scope of this standard when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer (see Clause 4).
A machine which is a combination of several parts with different applications should conform to all relevant requirements of the standards referring to the corresponding parts of the machine.
For multipurpose machinery the parts of the standard that cover the specific functions and applications have to be used, e.g. sweeper used for spreading thawing material or snow removing machines with brooms and ploughs should use the relevant requirements of prEN 17106 parts 2 to 4-1.
This European Standard does not deal with:
- carrier vehicles, e.g. trucks, tractors, construction machinery, mobile industrial handling equipment;
NOTE 2 These requirements are covered in directives related to the construction of vehicles.
- demountable bodyworks on carrier vehicles (e.g. load platforms, boxes);
- risks associated with the operation of machines in potentially explosive atmospheres;
- pedestrian controlled and hand-held machines;
- remote controlled machines, except for the risks related to the working equipment only;
- lawn and garden equipment;
- machines for the maintenance of sports grounds;
- machines for agriculture, horticulture and forestry;
- earth-moving and mobile road construction machinery according to EN 474-1:2006+A4:2013 and EN 500-1:2006+A1:2009;
- road surface treatment machines according to EN 13020:2015;
- snow-grooming equipment according to EN 15059:2009+A1:2015;
- machines or components which are solely designed for clearing rails such as rail/tram-line sweepers or blowers;
- sweeping/cleaning equipment according to EN 60335-2-72;
- pit and sewer cleaning vehicles/-machines;
- refuse-collecting vehicles;
- airport machines and equipment;
- snow throwers according to ISO 8437-1.
This European Standard does not include requirements which are covered in directives related to the construction of vehicles or national road regulations.
NOTE 3 For specific directives and/or road regulations, see bibliography.
The use in public road traffic is governed by the national regulations.
This European Standard does not deal with significant hazards associated with Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC).
This European Standard does not deal with significant hazards associated with vibration.
