Revised ACR publication – ACR Information sheet number 4 rev3

The ACR is pleased to announce the publication of it’s revised Information Sheet No 4

The original Information sheet No 4 provided information in regard to the issues surrounding the relationship between BS EN 795 and the European PPE Directive 89/686/EEC (both of which deal with various types of Fall Protection Anchors)

With the publication in 2012 of the non-harmonised standard, EN 795, many Clients and Manufacturers are left in confusion and difficulty when trying to now specify an appropriate approval for an eyebolt, horizontal life line system or track system.

Rev1  subsequently provided an overview of the current situation regarding the approval process.

However many seem confused with regards to testing to EN 795 1996 and 2012 as well as the requirement to CE marking generally.

Rev 2 provided  summary points to assist readers understanding the requirements,

Rev 3 updates this document following the publication of EN 795: 2012  in the Official Journal (December 2015) of the  EU  harmonising  types  B  and  E equipment .( These types of equipment are required to be  CE  approved  with  the  provisions  of the PPE Directive 89/686/EEC.)
