Escalator and Moving Walk Standard References

The European EN 115-1:2017 Standard is applied to escalators and moving walks (Step, Pallet or Belt type), replaced the EN 115-1:2008+A1:2010 cancelling it, and deals with the entire range of significant hazards, hazardous situations and events when used as intended and under conditions of misuse that are foreseeable by the manufacturer. The standard does not apply to escalators and moving walks manufactured before the date of its publication but it is recommended that any existing machines conform to this standard.
The following standards are the essential references used, in part and in whole, for the EN 115-1:2017 escalator and moving walk standard.
The Standard defines safety requirements for escalators and moving walks. It also covers all major hazards, dangers, misuse and situations related to the above-mentioned. The objective is to safeguard people/objects against risks of accidents during installation, operation, maintenance & inspection work. The European Commission and the European Free Trade Association supported the essential requirements of EU Directives and instructed CEN to create the new version of the Standard. The final version of the standard is EN 115-1:2017 which was approved by the Technical Committee CEN/TC 10  , and superseded EN 115-1:2008+A1:2010.
