Regal inspections in accordance to DIN EN 15635
We have been carrying out rack inspections since 2008
According to the legislator, storage facilities are work equipment and must therefore comply with the safety regulations of the Equipment and Product Safety Act (GPSG) and bear the Tested Safety seal (GS mark), as well as the CE mark (Conformité Européenne) within the EU. The GS mark and the CE mark are the only legally regulated awards for product safety in Europe.
The storage facilities also ideally bear the “RAL-RG 614 quality assurance for storage and facility facilities” issued by the trade association for storage and factory facilities and the corresponding regulations of the trade association BGR 234.
The European standard EN 15635, as well as the industrial safety regulation transfer new obligations to the operator of storage facilities:
In accordance with Section 3 of the Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health and DIN EN 15635 8.1.1 and 9.2, the operator must prepare a risk assessment (risk analysis) for shelving systems and have the shelving system checked by a qualified person in accordance with Section 10 – in accordance with the deadlines determined. The procedure for these shelf inspections is regulated by the standard in the German version DIN EN 15635: 2009-08, which came into force in Germany on August 1st, 2009.
Shelf systems subject to inspection
Shelf systems that are subject to inspection are:
- Shelving racks and pallet racks
- Cantilever racks
- Drive-in racks, drive-through racks, flow racks
- Multi-storey facilities
