SBS Study - Mapping of national initiatives on existing lifts modifications

The core business of most lift SMEs is in maintenance, repair and modernisation services. To complete this study, a survey has been launched in 2022 among the EFESME members to gather information on what practices exist on lifts modifications at national level.

In some member countries the national standardisation bodies have developed local good practices that define the requirements for carrying out repair and modernisation works on installations "in a workmanlike manner".

The experts involved have mapped and compared these common practices to asses if there is a need for common European guidelines to support the execution of the most complex interventions on existing installations, or whether the situation, although handled differently at national level, has reached its balance.
