Safety requirements for lifts (elevators) — Part 1: Global essential safety requirements (GESRs)
ISO/TS 22559-1:2004 specifies global essential safety requirements (GESRs) for lifts (elevators), their components and functions, and establishes a system and provides methods for minimizing safety risks that may arise in the course of, the operation and use of, or work on, lifts.
ISO/TS 22559-1:2004 is applicable to lifts that: a) are intended to carry persons, and that can be located in any permanent and fixed structure or building, except lifts located in private residences (single family units), and means of transport (e.g. ships); b) have any rated load, size of load carrying unit and speed, and travel distance and number of landings; c) be affected by fire in the load-carrying unit (LCU), earthquake, weather or flood; d) be misused (e.g. overloaded) but not vandalized.
ISO/TS 22559-1:2004 does not specifically cover all needs of users with disabilities, or risks arising from work on lifts under construction or during alterations and dismantling, or the use of lifts for fire fighting and emergency evacuation, or vandalism, and fire outside the LCU.
