With the coming into force of the Lifts Directive, transposed in Italy with DPR (Italian Presidential Decree) 162/99, before being put into service, lifts must be subject to a conformity audit by a Notified company, or they can be CE-marked and put into service directly by the installer if the latter operates a quality system complying with the Directive.
- CE type test - Mod. B (Ann. V)
- Final test - Ann. VI
- Inspection of a single product – Mod. G (Ann. X)
- Certification of the company quality system (Total Quality Guarantee – Mod. H Ann. XIII)
- Certification of the company quality management system (Production Quality Guarantee - Mod. D Ann. XIV).
The company quality management becomes a key element for assessing product conformity: companies that already comply with ISO 9001 standards can operate according to the procedures contained in modules H, D and E of the Directive (Annexes XIV, XIII and XII).
