Call again to complete EN 13000 questionnaire

23 November 2010

Since 1 May 2010 all mobile cranes sold into Europe have been equipped with the much-talked about rated capacity limiter conforming to the EN 13000:2010 European Standard.

The new system has generated controversy. In response, crane owners throughout Europe are being surveyed to report their experience with these new rated capacity limiters. In a joint project with the European Federation of Materials Handling (FEM), the European Association of Heavy Haulage Transport and Mobile Cranes (ESTA) is issuing a special FEM - ESTA questionnaire that all owners in Europe of mobile cranes delivered after 1 May 2010 are encouraged to complete.

During the next three weeks the questionnaire will be sent out to all owners and operators within Europe, who took delivery of a mobile crane after 1 May.

The questionnaire is also available from ESTA, at its web site, from FEM. Versions in languages other than English will also be made available where required.
