BS EN 16228-3:2014

Drilling and foundation equipment. Safety. Horizontal directional drilling equipment (HDD)

Status : Current, Under review   Published : August 2014



This European Standard, together with part 1, deals with all significant hazards for horizontal directional drilling equipment (HDD) when they are used as intended and under the conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer associated with the whole life time of the machine (see Clause 4).

The requirements of this part are complementary to the common requirements formulated in EN 16228‑1:2014.

This document does not repeat the requirements from EN 16228‑1, but adds or replaces the requirements for application for horizontal directional drills.

A machine is considered a horizontal directional drill if it is designed to drill in a shallow arc for the installation of pipes, conduits, and cables and typically has a drill string entry angle of less than 45° relative to the operating surface of the earth.
