Unit Verification – LD

A unit verification is the procedure of choice if there is no examination of the model lift, or if there is no full agreement between the elevator and the type tested model lift. See verifikationsflow.

Unit verification can be divided in a

  • design review, where the technical documentation is assessed, and a
  • production control, where the practical testing performed implemented as described in the final inspection.

Design review

The technical documentation, which documents that the elevator is in accordance with Lift Directive requirements shall be represented. Based on the technical documentation it shall be possible to understand the lift construction, installation and operation. The documentation shall be attached to the application.

The documentation must contain the following basic elements:

  1. A general description of the lift.
  2. Construction drawings or diagrams and production drawings or diagrams.
  3. Essential requirements and how those requirements are satisfied (eg. Harmonized standards).
  4. Any results of any tests or calculations, as the installer has carried out or commissioned.
  5. A copy of the instruction manual for the lift – see final inspection, point 3.
  6. A copy of the EU-type examination certificate of the safety components used.

If  the design review states that the lift is constructed according to Lifts Directive, the lift will be subjected to practical tests, as described in the final inspection.

If the result of unit verification shows compliance with the Lifts Directive alternatively relevant harmonized standards and a acceptable operational test a “approved” sticker is placed in the chair including the CE marking (CE0200).

FORCE Certification A / S shall issue a certificate of conformity with the information on the checks carried out and tests. Relevant pages of elevator service book is completedfilled.
