Over deze norm
This document specifies the minimum requirements for safety and performance of firefighting and rescue service vehicles as designated in EN 1846-1:1998. Firefighting and rescue service vehicles normally use a commercial chassis-cab or vehicle. A special chassis may be used for specialised vehicles to meet particular requirements. This document deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to firefighting and rescue service vehicles, when they are used as intended and under the conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). Further requirements for aerial appliances are contained within other European Standards (see EN 1777, EN 14043 and EN14044). This document does not apply to: personnel carrying vehicles; vehicles with a gross laden mass not exceeding 2 t; boats; aircraft; trains; ambulances; airport vehicles complying with International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) recommendations. This document deals with the technical requirements to minimise the hazards listed in Clause 4 which can arise during the commissioning, the operational use and the routine checking of firefighting and rescue service vehicles when carried out in accordance with the specifications given by the manufacturer or his authorised representative. It does not cover the hazards generated by: radiation (low frequency, radio frequency, radiation, micro-waves); errors in the software; use in potentially explosive atmospheres; construction, transportation, maintenance and decommissioning; wind pressure in and out of use; static electricity problems; remote control; electromagnetic compatibility. This document also deals with performance requirements. This document is not applicable to machines which are manufactured before its date of publication as a European standard.
