|Publication Date:||8 April 2008|
This document provides information and guidance regarding applicable U.S. industry and government documents and standards to users specifying requirements for overhead and gantry cranes for nuclear facilities. This includes documents and standards written specifically for cranes, as well as others having provisions specific to cranes. Some are codified in U.S. law. Others are national or industry consensus standards. Of the latter, some are applicable to nearly all crane applications and are typically invoked by owner specifications. Others apply to special-purpose crane applications and are not necessarily appropriate for commercial or standard industrial cranes.
