Ensure the standard of your lifts with Lifts Directive 2014/33/EU

Aim higher with Lifts Directive (LD) certification.

Lloyd's Register (LR) provides a streamlined one-stop service to lead you through the assessment and certification process. We make the process run smoothly.

Overview

The Lifts Directive (LD) applies to lifts permanently serving buildings and constructions. It also applies to safety components for use in such lifts. A 'lift' is defined as an appliance serving specific levels, having a car moving along guides which are rigid and inclined at an angle of more than 15 degrees to the horizontal and intended for the transport of:

  • Persons
  • Persons and goods
  • Goods alone if the car is accessible and fitted with controls situated inside the car or within reach of a person inside.
  • Lifts moving along a fixed course even where they do not move along rigid guides fall within the scope of the Directive (for example, scissor lifts).


If you are designing and manufacturing any of the defined safety components or are installing new lifts, you must comply with this directive.

  • EC Design examination
