Based on the size of the fault, which is still detectable with the test method used, this calculation has to determine the theoretical residual life of the component under the operating stress until the critical crack propagation is carried out. The resulting time limits for the next non-destructive tests shall not exceed the theoretical residual service life and shall be in the case of uncertainties in the acceptance of the material properties and the operating stress shall be reduced accordingly. The sensitivity of the test procedure, the crack growth calculation and the determination of the time limits for the next non-destructive testing shall be included in the documentation of the review referred to in Section 3.

Non-destructive testing of at least 20 percent each, but at least two pieces of the couplable clamps at least every 5 years.

The test objects shall be selected in accordance with the principle of rotation in such a way that each coupling terminal of the cableway shall be checked once at the latest every 25 years or 50 000 operating hours. If deficiencies are found in the course of a test, this test shall be extended to all terminals.

8.

Non-destructive testing of at least 10 percent each, but at least two of the fixed terminals at:

11.

Non-destructive testing of at least 5 percent each, but at least two pieces of the drives in the dismantled state for circulation cable cars; for the first time within 5 years after the first commissioning of the components, then at least once a year.

The test objects shall be selected in accordance with the principle of rotation in such a way that each drive of the cable car is checked once at the latest every 15 years or 30 000 operating hours. If defects are detected during an audit, this check is to be extended to all drives.

In the case of low-rope drag lifts, no additional checks and, in the case of towing lifts with a high rope guidance, shall be carried out only with the complementary checks in accordance with Z 6, 8 and 10.

For the supplementary verifications according to Z 1, the manufacturers of the test items or qualified specialist companies and for the supplementary verifications according to Z 2 to 13 are to be used to attract accredited inspection bodies.

For the supplementary verifications according to Z 4 to 12, with the exception of those from all-round hot-dip galvanised lengths (including the cowling head) and with the exception of those according to Z 6 for towed lifts, the non-destructive testing shall be in the form of a Visual inspection alone is not sufficient.
