The standards are available from the relevant standards organization. They can be found at the federal Office of transport, Muhlestrasse 6, 3063 Ittigen.

Section 2 Maintenance art. 28 prescriptions of the manufacturers it is necessary to perform maintenance according to the instructions of the manufacturer.
The manufacturer establishes his prescriptions including defining standards specified in Schedule 1 and the provisions of this order. It can: a. establish requirements stricter than those defined in the standards; forgotten the source. depart from the requirements of the standards for the corresponding certificates.

The manufacturer says the requirements of maintenance in its operating and maintenance instructions.
The transport to cable company fixed intervals for inspections and controls during the operating phase and adapts based on new findings for example from experience of exploitation or the conclusions of the control of the cable service.

Art. 29 security principles and criteria for removing the safety principles and requirements for removal criteria according to SN EN 12927-6 (annex 1, Chapter 1) apply to all cables. Eligible diameter reduction is defined in annex 5.
The cables are considered ready to be filed when their State cannot or more to be determined with sufficient certainty using available control methods. It goes same for cables which the State allows more cable or splice opening inspection.
The OFT may require the replacement of a cable of a cable transport installation subject to Federal concession, the technical control of the IATTC service may require it for other cable transport installations.
The supporting cables must be moved after twelve years at the latest so that sections exposed to high stresses and that can not be controlled can be; If this is not possible, they must be filed.
As a general rule, the cables are moved from a length equivalent at least to the longest hoof (= zone to control more 1 m). There is place: a. to ensure that the sections subject to severe constraints are more; b. control by magneto-inductive control (MRT method), the supporting cables on their free before moving sections, then, after moving, on sections that could not be controlled before; c. to visually control the displaced sections cables.

The supporting cables to cable gondolas to continuous motion must be moved every six years length to the longest hoof more 5 Mr. must ensure that the controls referred to in paras. 4 and 6 focus on all the areas between the end of supporting cables ties. The need to draw up a control plan taking into account the opinion of the control of the cable service.

The standards are available from the relevant standards organization. They can be found at the federal Office of transport, Muhlestrasse 6, 3063 Ittigen.

Art. 30 exceeding of the values of the criteria for removal if a cable does not meet the criteria for removal, it can remain in operation if an outside specialist confirmed (art. 54 OICa) has set the necessary measures and that they are implemented.
Verifying respect for the criteria of removal, it must take account of the following points: a. reduction in the resistant according to annex 5 section corresponds to the sum of the sections due to wires broken, corroded, relaxed, worn, or damaged in any other way on determining (= reference length) cable length; b. the section reduction is reported in resistant section of the new cable; c. wires inserted joined their two ends, cannot be considered to be resistance fighters that if they were inserted in totally relaxed cables; d. prescriptions on which is based the design of the facility, including the criteria of removal for facilities governed by the old law according to annexes 6 and 7, must be taken into account.

When the tensile safety factor is lower than the minimum limit values, the limit values corresponding to the reduction in maximum eligible section is reduced proportionally to the relative gap between the factor of safety to the traction and the minimum limit values.

Art. 31 reviews the OFT or the technical of the IATTC control service may require that cables filed, stretches of cables and fasteners for ends that have been replaced as a result of findings during inspections by the MRT method or other methods of inspection they be issued and that the transport to cable company keeps carefully to time their support.

Section 3 Inspection by the company of transport to cable art. 32 General provisions the external condition of the cables and their fixing elements is being a periodic Visual inspection on the entire length of the cables under the supervision of the technical leader or his substitute.

Before the inspection, the cables and their fixing items need to be cleaned so that it is possible to visually inspect the exterior without difficulty.
The results of the inspection must be in writing. There are taken into account art. 51 art. 33 periodicity of inspections the periodicity of inspections is determined in function of art. 28 more: a. it is necessary to inspect the State of the cable box (at least 2 m) before the end fasteners and which can not be considered at a control by using the method visually at least once a quarter MRT; b. There is place to inspect visually at least once a year the State of the socket of the protection of the cast heads and heads dry; c sleeve. for installations in operation semi-annual, he must carry out inspections if possible just before the opening of the operation; d. There is place to visually inspect the State dry heads and the moorings on the tractors cable drum at least every three years.

Art. 34 criteria for inspection the inspection criteria are determined according to art. 28. in addition, there is place: a. Locate the new ruptures of son in establishing their distance from a fixed point, e.g. an end attachment or a splice; b. compare the loss of section, calculated on the basis of ruptures of son found, relative to the length of reference, with the criteria for removal according to annex 5; c. to locate the son and relaxed strands and to consider them as son broken; (d) to measure the diameter of the cables in at least three places: at both ends or before and after the splice, and the middle of the cable. Measurements must be made to ensure that values are comparable and their observable evolution. This can be done by always measures in the same locations; e. to rehabilitate in time visibly slumped splice junctions and showing signs of corrosion by friction between the strands. The average value of the diameter measured on two pairs of strands must be greater than or equal to 90% of the nominal diameter of the cable. The smaller diameter measured on a pair of strands must be greater than or equal to 85% of the nominal diameter. If these limits are not met, there is place to splice in a State more quickly.

It is necessary to measure the length of the wiring no and compare it to the manufacturer. As a general rule, we proceed to action in three places: at the ends of the cable or before and after the splice, and the middle of the cable. If there is a deviation of 10%, there is place to consult a specialized third party.
When the annual check, the ends of the cable ties must be visually inspected in order to look for signs of corrosion and broken wires. For this purpose, there is: a. to remove the cast head protection sleeve and dry heads; b. do not disassemble the bindings of the tractors and carrying cables moored on drum; c. to place on at least 5 m from the drum tension moored on a winch cable.

During the three-year control, it is necessary to open the dry heads and unroll the moorings on drum of cable tractors, control about the presence of broken wires and corrosion and, finally, to seal them again.
Areas of cables, including areas of support and anchor drums that cannot be inspected visually, should be subject to a Visual inspection after the removal of the cables.

Section 4 maintenance of cables art. 35. the requirements for the cleaning and lubrication of cables must comply with the standard SN EN 12927-7 (annex 1, ch. 1).
Solvents and cleaning products can be used for a local cleaning. They must be construed in the the wire cable to the soul or the lubricant.
There is place to eliminate dirt before lubrication.
Products used for the subsequent lubrication must be compatible with already used lubricants and meet the requirements of the manufacturer and the requirements of the standard SN EN 12385-8 (Appendix 1, c. 4).

The standards are available from the relevant standards organization. They can be found at the federal Office of transport, Muhlestrasse 6, 3063 Ittigen.

Section 5 control by a control of the cable art. 36 General non-destructive controls of the cables must be entrusted to a control cable service accredited and recognized by the OFT.
To be recognized as accredited, control of the cables must be covered by a liability insurance. The sum insured must be based on risk.
The insurer will have to commit to the policyholder to announce any suspension or suppression of civil liability to the OFT. The insurance contract also will specify that the suspension or deletion will become effective no earlier than 15 days after receipt of this announcement.
Requirements for execution, intervals and criteria of the controls on wireline by a control of the cables are defined according to SN EN 12927-7 standards and 12927-8 (Appendix 1, ch. 1). There is place to meet the requirements of the manufacturer in accordance with art. 28. in order to control the cables, the transport company ensures that the cables are in a State of cleanliness to allow proper monitoring. In accordance with the control of the cable service, she prepares installation to ensure safety in the workplace is guaranteed.
Important documents, notably the records referred to in art. 49, must be available for the activity of the control of the cable service.

The standards are available from the relevant standards organization. They can be found at the federal Office of transport, Muhlestrasse 6, 3063 Ittigen.

Art. 37 running a service control cables must control the State of the cables by observing accepted intervals for this purpose.
The transport to cable company provides ad hoc mandate.
The control cables fixed the appropriate procedure for the control.
After the audit, control of cable service establishes a control report where it records the recommendations as to the measures to be taken. It contains the time of the next audit by control of the cable service, given the limitations of eligible damage.
The transport to cable company confirms in writing that the recommended actions have been completed: a. service of control cables that carried out the control and the OFT for transport to cable facilities subject to Federal concession; b. with the service of control cables that carried out the control and technical control of the IATTC for other cable transport installations.

The control service cables ensures that deadlines he recommends for the execution of the measures are observed. In time, it draws attention to the following entities on breaches of time limits and the fact that the eligible damage limit will be reached: a. the transport to cable company and the OFT for transport to cable facilities subject to Federal concession; b. cables transport company and technical control of the IATTC for other cable transport installations.

Art. 38 frequency intervals between non-destructive controls of the cables are defined in accordance with art. 28 more: a. it is necessary to take into account specific data of the installation when determining the intervals; b. requirements according to the standard SN EN 12979-7, ch. 8 (annex 1, Chapter 1) apply to the usages.c cables. When measurement conditions are difficult, control of cable service again the transport to cable company a plan of specific control of the installation, by setting the type, scope, and intervals of the controls.

The standards are available from the relevant standards organization. They can be found at the federal Office of transport, Muhlestrasse 6, 3063 Ittigen.

Art. 39 ways to control the State of the cables must be controlled by the appropriate method to examine the decline of section due to shortages of son, corrosion and wear.
Requirements for Visual controls of the cables are defined according to the standard SN EN 13018 (annex 1, ch. 8).
The MRT method and x-ray control requirements are defined according to SN EN 12927-7 standards and 12927-8 (Appendix 1, ch. 1).
If any damage unknown or uncertain, accumulations of ruptures of son, corrosion or damage due to lightning are noted using the control unit, the result of a Visual check of the cable must be taken into account in the assessment of the extent of the damage.
The control of cable service may use other methods of control such as the radiography to complete his judgment on critical areas of the cable.

Art. 40 criteria of control control criteria are defined according to the standard SN EN 12927-7 (annex 1, ch. 1).

The State of the cables must be controlled in order to examine the decline of section due to shortages of son, corrosion and wear. In this case: a. observed accumulations of son-outs and corrosion must be localized, marked durably and subject to a Visual inspection, if necessary by dismantling and opening of the cable; There are also noted their distance from a fixed point, for example a setting of end or a splice; b. to defective places, it determines the number of wires broken, damaged or relaxed compared to the key length of the cable and the reduction of the resistant section.

The cable diameter and length not are measured in several places: a. the length of wiring no must be measured and compared with the information in the certificate of technical approval or in the declaration of conformity and the measured values previously. Generally: 1. There are rather than three measures indicating the point of measurement, namely: to the ends of the cable, or before and after the splice, and the middle of the cable, 2. the measure must achieve a precision of at least +/-2 mm;

(b) if the measured values deviate indications contained in the certificate of technical approval at the rate of 10% or 5% for cable carriers-tractors tractors cables, you must determine the cause. We have to take account of the changes that occurred between the controls; c. the diameter of the cable must be measured in several places and compared to the diameter of the cable contact. If the diameter of the cable is the same or less than the diameter of the cable contact, it must assess any damage to the cable.

Splices must be controlled in order to examine the narrowings and irregularities of the geometry of the cable. It determines the strongest shrinking as a percentage of the nominal diameter. It is necessary to indicate the dimensions of the areas of intersection and seal, the diameter of the cable between these areas and the geometry of the splice in the inspection report and compare the criteria for removal according to annex 5.
After the move of the supporting cables, must be examined visually by survey areas that have been strained before.
