Aircraft ground support equipment - Specific requirements - Part 1: Container/pallet dollies and loose load trailers
This document specifies the technical requirements to minimise the hazards listed in Clause 4 which can arise during the commissioning, operation and maintenance of container/pallet dollies and loose load trailers when carried out in accordance with the specifications given by the manufacturer or his authorised representative. It also takes into account some performance requirements recognised as essential by authorities, aircraft and ground support equipment (GSE) manufacturers as well as airlines and handling agencies.
This document applies to container/pallet dollies using ball-mat, inverted cargo castors, or rollers and loose load trailers intended to be used for the transportation of baggage and cargo on airports (Examples see Annex A).
This document does not apply to trailers of similar design as used on public roads, e.g. truck type trailers.
This document does not establish requirements for noise and vibration.
Noise and vibration are dealt with respectively in EN 1915-4 and EN 1915-3.
This document is not applicable to container/pallet dollies and loose load trailers which are manufactured before the date of publication by CEN of this document.
NOTE Certain measurements have been given in imperial units (in parentheses), following the metric measurements, since the containers/pallets to be handled are based mainly on the imperial system.
