The Regulation on Cableway installations states provisions on the making available on the market and the free movement of subsystems and safety components for cableway installations. It contains rules on the design, construction and entry into service of new cableway installations designed to transport persons and applies to modifications of cableway installations requiring a new authorisation.

Cableway installations are mainly lift systems, such as funicular railways, aerial ropeways (cable cars, gondolas, chairlifts) and drag lift.

The Guide explains the steps to follow to CE mark a new construction product and what to do if there are changes to a product (its processes, raw materials, testing, etc.) which makes it necessary to revise the relevant documents.

The rules for CE marking for construction products have changed since 1 July 2013. Therefore, the need could be to update the CE marking of products.

Commission communication 2015/C 267/01 containing the references of the harmonised standards to the Directive 2000/9/EC was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 14 August 2015.
