This European Standard specifies the technical requirements to minimize the hazards listed in Clause 4 which can arise during the commissioning, the operation and the maintenance of deicers and equipment designed exclusively for de-icing and washing of aircraft with de-icing/anti-icing/
NOTE 1 Safety of aircraft in connection with de-icing/anti-icing operations is not dealt with in this European Standard. Any, even minor, aircraft de-icing or anti-icing operation directly affects flight safety on take-off. Prevention of aeronautical accidents resulting from in-flight icing principally concerns the fluids and methods used, but it may in certain cases also concern de-icing or anti-icing equipment design or operation. These aeronautical aspects are controlled by the applicable Civil Aviation regulations ICAO 9640-AN/940, Manual of aircraft ground de-icing/anti-icing operations and EASA EU-OPS Subpart D 1.345 and its Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) and covered in ISO 11076:2012 (AEA Recommendations). They are not covered in this European Standard.
This European Standard applies to:
a) self-propelled deicers with fixed or mobile platform or hinged boom;
b) towable deicers with fixed or mobile platform or hinged boom;
c) stationary de-icing/anti-icing equipment (e.g. fixed boom, gantry or tower cranes equipped with aircraft de-icing/anti-icing fluid systems).
This European Standard does not apply to:
d) fixed installations, such as separate storage tanks or heating and filling stations, which are not an integrated part of the stationary de-icing equipment;
e) hydraulic control systems;
f) pneumatic systems;
g) flow generating systems as such.
No extra requirements on noise and vibration are provided other than those in EN 1915-3 and EN 1915-4.
NOTE 2 EN 1915-3 and EN 1915-4 provide the general GSE vibration and noise requirements.
This European Standard is not dealing with hazards in respect to a standard automotive chassis and the traffic on the apron.
This part of EN 12312 is not applicable to deicers and de-icing/anti-icing equipment which are manufactured before the date of publication of this standard by CEN.
This part of EN 12312 when used in conjunction with EN 1915-1, EN 1915-2, EN 1915-3 and EN 1915-4 provides the requirements for deicers and de-icing/anti-icing equipment.
