This European Standard specifies the safety rules related to new passenger and goods/passenger lifts permanently installed in existing buildings where in some circumstances due to limitations enforced by building constraints, some requirements of EN 81-1 and EN 81-2 cannot be met (see also 4th sentence of Introduction). This European Standard addresses a number of these constraints and gives requirements for alternative solutions. It shall be read and applied in conjunction with the European Standards EN 81-1 or EN 81-2 and their amendments A1:2005 and A2:2004, including their Clause 0. This European Standard covers: - Either the construction and installation of one or more complete new lift(s) in an existing building; or - The replacement of one or more existing lift(s) by new ones in existing well(s) and machinery spaces. This European Standard does not cover: - Replacement or modifications of some parts to a lift already installed; - Other applications outside of the scope of EN 81-1 or EN 81-2.
