Public consultation on revised lifting equipment ACOP

This consultative document seeks your views on the revised version of the Approved Code of Practice (L113) relating to the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER). This revision follows the agreement to review such documents identified by Professor Ragnar Löfstedt.

The amends proposed are designed to bring the document up to date with regulatory and other changes and to make the understanding and use of the document easier, particularly with clarifying which equipment is subject to the provisions of the regulations and the role of the competent person. The amendments also accommodate suggestions made in the earlier consultation in September 2012.

The proposed amendment will be of interest to those that work with any lifting equipment provided at work or for the use of people at work, those who employ such people, those that represent them and those people who act as a competent person in the examination of lifting equipment.
