DZ 8635  (Committee P8635)

Passenger ropeways and passenger conveyers

The public comment draft of NZS 8635 is an identical adoption of Canadian standard CSA Z98:2014 Passenger ropeways and passenger conveyors, modified only by the addition of New Zealand-specific material clauses covering New Zealand regulatory requirements, clarification of definitions and terms in a New Zealand context, equivalent standards, standards relevant to the New Zealand situation, and additional sections on ropeways used in New Zealand but not covered by Z98-14. Comments are invited only on the New Zealand-specific material, as the adopted Canadian standard itself is not intended to be altered.

The public comment period for this draft is about to expire. Closing date for comments 24/02/2017.
