Change is coming to the mobile access tower industry, as EN 1004 was updated in 2020. EN 1004-1 (published in the UK as BS EN 1004-1) is the design standard for mobile access towers used across Europe. It’s been adopted in many other countries too. It tells us what materials, dimensions, design loads, safety and performance requirements these products should conform to. Everyone designing, manufacturing, supplying, buying, hiring or using a mobile access tower in Europe should make sure that it complies with EN 1004. The revision has been a lengthy process. PASMA participated extensively throughout and helped shape the updates. On this page, we are sharing our experience and knowledge of the revision to help the industry prepare for EN1004-1:2020.
BSI published the new standard in the UK in November 2020.
