BS EN 12312-6:2017

Aircraft ground support equipment. Specific requirements. Deicers and de-icing/anti-icing equipment

Status : Current   Published : March 2017



This European Standard specifies the technical requirements to minimize the hazards listed in Clause 4 which can arise during the commissioning, the operation and the maintenance of deicers and equipment designed exclusively for deicing and washing of aircraft with deicing/antiicing/washing liquids when used as intended, including misuse reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer, when carried out in accordance with the specifications given by the manufacturer or his authorized representative. It also takes into account some requirements recognized as essential by authorities, aircraft and ground support equipment (GSE) manufacturers as well as airlines and handling agencies. NOTE 1 Safety of aircraft in connection with deicing/antiicing operations is not dealt with in this European Standard. Any, even minor, aircraft deicing or antiicing operation directly affects flight safety on take-off. Prevention of aeronautical accidents resulting from in-flight icing principally concerns the fluids and methods used, but it may in certain cases also concern deicing or antiicing equipment design or operation. These aeronautical aspects are controlled by the applicable Civil Aviation regulations ICAO 9640-AN/940, Manual of aircraft ground de-icing/anti-icing operations and EASA EU-OPS Subpart D 1.345 and its Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) and covered in ISO 11076:2012 (AEA Recommendations). They are not covered in this European Standard. This European Standard applies to: a) self-propelled deicers with fixed or mobile platform or hinged boom; b) towable deicers with fixed or mobile platform or hinged boom; c) stationary deicing/antiicing equipment (e.g. fixed boom, gantry or tower cranes equipped with aircraft deicing/antiicing fluid systems). This European Standard does not apply to: d) fixed installations, such as separate storage tanks or heating and filling stations, which are not an integrated part of the stationary deicing equipment; e) hydraulic control systems; f) pneumatic systems; g) flow generating systems as such. No extra requirements on noise and vibration are provided other than those in EN 1915-3 and EN 1915-4. NOTE 2 EN 1915-3 and EN 1915-4 provide the general GSE vibration and noise requirements. This European Standard is not dealing with hazards in respect to a standard automotive chassis and the traffic on the apron. This part of EN 12312 is not applicable to deicers and deicing/antiicing equipment which are manufactured before the date of publication of this standard by CEN. This part of EN 12312 when used in conjunction with EN 1915-1, EN 1915-2, EN 1915-3 and EN 1915-4 provides the requirements for deicers and deicing/antiicing equipment.
