Following an internal ballot of its members, TC53 – the CEN technical committee for temporary works equipment including mobile towers – has confirmed that the draft of the revised EN 1004 standard should be sent out for official enquiry.
Each of the member states will now make the draft available to those involved and the public for comment, and then decide either to vote positively or negatively for publication of a revised EN 1004 standard. They may also submit comments which TC53 WG4, the working group tasked with the job of revising the standard, will need to consider and resolve.
In the UK, B514 the BSI national committee for temporary works equipment has directed its subcommittee, B514/24 mobile towers, to consider the draft and make a recommendation for the UK vote on the draft. As a member of that BSI committee, Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ and Manufacturers’ Association (PASMA) will put forward its views and the PASMA Technical Committee will meet shortly to discuss the draft.
