The Labour Inspectorate, the 27. June 2008 Lis Gamborg/Sonja Ploug Jensen



Annex 1 Directive 95/16/EC of 29 April 2004. June 1995 (Lift directive) of the European PARLIAMENT and the Council of the European UNION,





 





having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular article 100 A thereof,





 





having regard to the proposal from the Commission (1),





 





having regard to the opinion of the Economic and Social Committee (2),





 





in accordance with the procedure laid down in article 189 B of the Treaty (3), on the basis of the Conciliation Committee, on the joint text approved on 17. in May 1995, and





 





on the basis of the following considerations:





 





It is the responsibility of the Member States on their territory to ensure citizens ' safety and health;





 





white paper on the completion of the internal market, approved by the European Council in June 1985, provide in section 65 and 68 provisions on the application of the new method of approximation of laws;





 





Council Directive 84/529/EEC of 17. September 1984 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to electrically, hydraulically or electro-hydraulically operated lifts (4), does not allow free circulation of all elevator types; the mandatory provisions of national laws relating to elevator types, which are not covered by Directive 84/529/EEC constitute due to their diversity, barriers to trade within the community; the national rules on lifts should therefore be harmonized;





 





Council Directive 84/528/EEC of 17. September 1984 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to common provisions for lifting, lifting and transport equipment (5) is the framework directive for two specific directives, namely Directive 84/529/EEC and Council Directive 86/663/EEC of 22. December 1986 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to self-propelled industrial trucks (6), repealed by Directive 91/368/EEC of 20. June 1991 amending Directive 89/392/EEC on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to machinery (7);





 





Adopted by the Commission on 8. June 1995 recommendation 95/216/EC (8) to the Member States concerning improvement of safety of existing lifts;





 





the essential requirements of this directive will only be able to ensure the desired level of security if there is among the provisions of Council decision 93/465/EEC of 22. July 1993 concerning the modules for the various phases of the conformity assessment procedures and the rules for the affixing and use of the CE conformity marking, with a view to be used in the technical harmonization directives (9), selected appropriate conformity assessment procedures, which ensure that these requirements are complied with;





 





lifts or certain of their safety components which comply with the essential health and safety requirements of this directive must bear the ' CE ' marking visible in order to be able to be placed on the market;





 





This directive lays down only the essential health and safety requirements, which are of a general nature; in order to make it easier for producers to prove that the lifts are in compliance with these essential requirements, and to verify whether these requirements are met, there should be harmonised at European level standards for the prevention of risks arising from elevatorers construction and installation; these harmonised standards at European level are drawn up by private-law bodies and must retain their status of texts, which are not legally binding; in this respect, recognised by the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN) and the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC) are the bodies that are competent to adopt harmonized standards in accordance with the General guidelines for cooperation between the Commission and those bodies signed on 13 November. November 1984; for the purposes of this directive, a harmonized standard is a technical specification adopted by one of those bodies, or by both under a mandate from the Commission in accordance with Council Directive 83/189/EEC of 28. March 1983 concerning a procedure for the provision of information in the field of technical standards and regulations (10), and pursuant to the abovementioned general guidelines;





 





It is important that there should be a transitional arrangement, so installers can market lifts manufactured before the date of transposition of this directive;





 





This directive is worded to cover all risks relating to lifts, as their users as well as the building's residents are exposed to; the directive must therefore be regarded as a directive within the meaning of article 2 (3) of Council Directive 89/106/EEC of 21 December 1988. December 1988 on the approximation of laws, regulations and administrative provisions on construction products (11);





 





The European Parliament, the Council and the Commission reached the 20. December 1994 an agreement on a modus vivendi concerning the implementing measures for acts adopted in accordance with the procedure laid down in article 189 B of the Treaty-
