Service and Maintenance

Service and Maintenance Regulations – What you need to know.

As a provider of security and access control solutions, it is our obligation to inform you of EC laws, and updates to laws, relating to the operation of automated access equipment and the potential liability issues that would arise in the event of human injury or death as a result of faulty, and bad maintained equipment.

To Summarise the Salient Points Relating to these Legal Requirements:

In accordance with The Supply Of Machinery (Safety) Regulations, it is a requirement that the end user/customer of all industrial doors and automated systems shall establish a fully documented maintenance regime in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.

The European Community Commission has declared that all AUTOMATIC CLOSING SYSTEMS (motorised gates and doors etc.) are governed by the Machine Directives 1 and must comply with the CE, EN12453 standard (and the corresponding CE, EN12445 relative to testing and measurement) determine the requirements for the automatic closing system and furnish indications as to how dangerous situations can be avoided or reduced according to the following methods:

  • Respecting the safety measurements
  • The minimum protection level and force limitation
  • Detecting presence and using safety devices
  • Resistance to breakage and failure
  • Documents to be handed over to the client must contain the following:
  • The operating instructions for the safe use of the system
  • Normal maintenance instructions
  • The declaration of approval
  • The maintenance register
  • It is also a requirement of British Standards (BS12453) that a bi-annual service of safety systems be carried out by a competent body.
  • It is, therefore, imperative that you ensure that every one of your company’s sites fitted with any form of automated access equipment, without exception, is issued with a maintenance regime compliant with European Community Commission directives
