Withdrawal from service and inspection of PPE

Along BGR 198 the operating time of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is dependent on the conditions of use where the information in the user manuals has to be considered. Under intense usage the maximum operation time usually will not be reached. Harnesses and ropes made of chemical fibres underlie a certain aging even without use, for example because of ultra-violet rays or other influences from climate and environment. Additionally the diluents in the textile material of the PPE can volatilise in time and the equipment can become brittle. This can lead to partly invisible damages of the material.  Read more

EN 353-1 withdrawn

On March 19, 2010 the European Commission has decided to withdraw the EN 353-1 (Guided type Fall arresters on including a rigid line). With this decision the examination and certification of these systems do not automatically lead to a presumption of conformity under this Standard. (This means, at the contrary to which was applied so far, it is not sufficient for a product to meet the requirements of the norm even confirmed by a testing organization in order to affix the CE label and to be used).
