This standard specifies minimum requirements for the splicing of eye terminations for six or eight strand steel wire ropes of up to 60 mm diameter complying with prEN 12385-4 used for slings to ensure that the spliced eye is strong enough to withstand a force of at least 80 % of the minimum breaking load of the rope. Other hazards covered by this standard are identified in clause 4. Resistance to fatigue loading is not considered to be a significant hazard for slings and is not covered by this standard.
