This European Standard specifies with the technical requirements to minimise the hazards listed in clause 4 which can arise during the commissioning, operation and maintenance of disabled/incapacitated passenger boarding equipment when carried out in accordance with the specifications given by the manufacturer or his authorised representative. It also takes into account some performance requirements recognized as essential by authorities, aircraft and ground support equipment (GSE) manufacturers as well as airlines and handling agencies. This standard defines specific safety requirements for transporters/boarding vehicles for incapacitated or disabled passengers, hereafter referred to as boarding vehicles, as defined under clause 3.1. This standard applies to pedestrian controlled self-propelled boarding vehicles, self-propelled boarding vehicles with integrated driver's accommodation and towable boarding vehicles, used for moving disabled or incapacitated passengers on an airport between the terminal building and the aircraft ramp and to board and disembark those passengers to and from civil aircraft. Examples of some typical boarding vehicles are shown in annex A. This standard assumes that a disabled or incapacitated passenger is accompanied by an attendant and may be seated in a wheelchair or reclining on a stretcher trolley. Major factors in the design of the equipment, with relevance to safety, are the consideration of psychological aspects, i.e. feelings of well-being and security, and the physical comfort of the passenger and the avoidance of panic. This standard also assumes that the types of wheelchairs which may be employed could be: - Standard type wheelchairs, e.g. in accordance with EN 12183:1999; - Wheelchairs with or without occupant self-restraint system; - Aircraft aisle-width wheelchairs; - Non-standard wheelchairs used at airports; - Non occupant propelled wheelchairs; - Battery powered wheelchairs, e.g. in accordance with EN 12184:1999. This standard does not apply to other forms of aircraft loaders not specifically designed for boarding of incapacitated or disabled passengers, e.g. mobile lounges, boarding bridges or externally mounted pods such as used on helicopters. This standard does not apply to pneumatic systems. This standard does not establish requirements for noise and vibration. Noise and vibration are dealt with respectively in prEN 1915-4 and prEN 1915-3. This standard does not deal with hazards in respect to a standard automotive chassis and from other vehicles on the apron. This Part of EN 12312 is not applicable to disabled/incapacitated passenger boarding equipment which is manufactured before the date of publication by CEN of this standard.
