New EN 280-1: 2022 fact sheet

The new standard that will supersede EN 280: 2013 + A1: 2015 was published in February 2022:
EN 280-1: 2022 Mobile elevating work platforms – Part 1: Design and calculations – Stability criteria – Construction – Safety – Examinations and tests.

This standard was harmonised for the EU in July 2023 and will be designated for the UK during January 2024; it defines a new state of the art for MEWPs. Machinery manufactured in conformity with the standard will be presumed to comply with the essential health and safety requirements of the relevant legislation. EN 280: 2013 + A1: 2015 will remain a harmonised and designated standard until 2nd February 2025 when this status will be withdrawn.

A second standard EN 280-2:2022 has also been published, harmonised and designated to provide supplementary requirements for load lifting appliances fitted to Type 1 Group B MEWPs. If you require further information on the scope or application of this standard, please contact us.

Manufacturers of mobile elevating work platforms who use EN 280: 2013 + A1: 2015 should be aware of the changes that will affect them – if you have not done so already, we recommend you take appropriate action to determine the impact on your business immediately.
