What is this standard about?

BS EN 81 defines lift safety rules to protect people from accidents caused by users, maintenance and the emergency operation of lifts. This part of the standard covers the safety of lift components.

Who is this standard for?

  • Lift manufacturers
  • Lift engineers
  • Anyone responsible for the installation and maintenance of lifts
  • Health and safety officers
  • Fire safety officers 

Why should you use this standard? 

It specifies the design rules, calculations, examinations and tests of lift components which are referred to by other standards used for the design of passenger lifts, goods passenger lifts, goods only lifts and other similar types of lifting appliances.

What’s changed since the last update?

The main changes to this edition of the standard include:

  • Improvement in safety due to changes in proven technology
  • Incorporation of essential health and safety requirements from the relevant EU Directives
  • Elimination of reported errors
  • Clarification of the text and incorporation of proposals resulting from interpretation requests
  • Improvement of the references to other standards according to the progress in that field

This British Standard is the UK implementation of EN 81-50:2014. Together with BS EN 81-20:2014, it supersedes BS EN 81-1:1998+A3:2009 and BS EN 81-2:1998+A3:2009, which have been withdrawn.
