EN 1298 to become EN 1004 Part 2

4/6/20 - EN 1298, the standard that tells us what to include in instruction manuals for mobile access towers, is being revised. The working group responsible for the revision, which is chaired by Don Aers, Technical Director at PASMA, agreed it would be sensible for EN 1298 to become part of EN 1004, the standard for the towers themselves. This move was approved by a vote this week. So, we can announce that the revised EN 1298 will be published as EN 1004 Part 2. The group has already completed a first draft of the new standard, which will now be put to a vote by members of CEN, the European body responsible for standardisation. We’ll keep you updated on the progress of the revision and bring you developments as they happen. In the meantime, the next change to tower standards affects EN 1004 Part 1. More on this here.
