This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to earth-moving machinery, when used under the conditions foreseen but also taking into account any reasonable foreseeable misuse thereof (see Clause 4). This European Standard specifies the appropriate technical measures to reduce risks arising from the significant hazards, hazardous situations and events during the whole foreseeable lifecycle of the machinery.
This European Standard is not applicable to machinery manufactured before the date of publication of this European Standard by CEN.
