e. a focus on the use of non-proprietary equipment;
f. a framework for compliance and therefore minimising onward liabilities.
This document applies to all engaged in activities connected to any aspect of the lift life cycle.
The purpose of this specification is to provide a recognised methodology and standardised approach for the installation of new lifts or refurbishing existing lifts and/or replacement of life expired lifts.
