What is this standard about?

It gives recommendations for pre-use checks, in-service inspection, maintenance and supplementary testing of cargo handling and container cranes.

Who is this standard for?

  • Cargo handling and container crane operators
  • Port authorities
  • Health and safety executives
  • Site project managers
  • Testers of crane equipment 

Why should you use this standard?

Cargo handling and container cranes are used to load and unload vessels, internal transfer vehicles, road vehicles and trains. They can also be used to lift containers or materials to and from temporary storage. The cranes can be installed in a static location, or on rails or wheels such that the crane can traverse a quay or storage area. They can handle containers, unit loads or bulk materials using specialist grabs.

This standard outlines specifications for pre-use checks, in-service inspection, maintenance, thorough examination (in service and following exceptional circumstances) and supplementary testing of this equipment. This covers cargo handling and container cranes used in both ports and inland facilities. 

This standard applies to the following types of cranes:

  • Ship to shore or quay cranes
  • Slewing jib cranes, including mobile harbour cranes
  • Level luffing slewing jib cranes
  • Rail mounted gantry cranes
  • Rubber tyred gantry cranes
  • Straddle carrier cranes
  • Scotch derricks
  • Boat hoists

The standard also covers lifting attachments for use in conjunction with the cranes, including container spreaders, overheight frames, rotators, grabs, magnets and crane baskets used to access containers on ships. It doesn’t apply to permanently installed cranes on marine and other water-borne vessels.

What’s changed since the last update?

  • BS 7121-2-9 has been updated by experts to bring it up to date with technological developments and industry best practice.
  • The BS 7121 series is currently being fully revised. This sub-part of BS 7121-2 is intended to be used in conjunction with BS 7121-2-1
