Organization: ISO
Publication Date: 1 August 2014
Status: active
Page Count: 34
ICS Code (Cargo equipment): 49.120
ICS Code (Ground service and maintenance equipment): 49.100
scope:

This part of ISO 6966 specifies the minimum design requirements applicable to all aircraft ground support equipment (GSE), as defined in 3.1 hereafter, in order to ensure

a) safety of staff operating or maintaining the equipment or in its vicinity, and

b) protection of aircraft against interference or damage.

An informative list of the most commonly used pieces of ground equipment is provided in Annex A hereafter. Nevertheless, the requirements of this part of ISO 6966 apply to any piece of aircraft ground support equipment, as defined, used on airports.

This part of ISO 6966 does not intend to provide all the design requirements applicable for aircraft ground support equipment. Other requirements apply, and can be found in separate International Standards:

- ISO 6966-1 specifies the general, other than safety-related, requirements applicable to all aircraft ground support equipment;

- ISO 4116 specifies the additional requirements applicable for conveying surfaces of those pieces of aircraft ground support equipment intended for handling and loading of baggage and cargo unit load devices;

- specific International Standards, listed in the Bibliography, define the functional and performance requirements for certain types of aircraft ground support equipment.

In most countries, standing Government Health and Safety laws and regulations apply to machinery, implicitly or explicitly, including aircraft ground support equipment. Nothing in this part of ISO 6966, however, shall be deemed or otherwise used to supersede any locally applicable law or regulation, unless a specific exemption has been obtained for this purpose from the appropriate Authority.

This part of ISO 6966 does not apply to automotive vehicles or parts thereof approved for public vehicles, when used on aircraft ground support equipment for the purpose for which they are designed.
