Ensure safety and operational availability for your cableway
Aerial cableways provide mass transport for hikers, skiers, walkers and professional athletes. Operators of cableway installations need to maintain aerial lift safety and availability. Cableways that carry people must comply with aerial lift certification safety and quality regulations such as the Cableway Directive 2000/9/EC, one of the most widely used in the world.
Manufacturers need to ensure subsystems and safety components are certified according to the directive before placing cableway installations on the market. For new installations, operators must guarantee the entire cableway system and infrastructure is validated according to local regulations and laws. Existing installations are subject to an annual aerial lift inspection by an independent organization. This is where TÜV SÜD can help.
