In Sweden almost every lift must be designed for persons with disabilities. Only in very rare situations is this not the case. Therefore, this is an important aspect for you as a manufacturer to investigate before you deliver a lift.
The Lift Directive 95/16/EC offers two possibilities: either a lift designed to fulfil all the accessibility requirements in the directive or a lift which does not fulfil all those requirements. The different national regulations tell you what is the case for a certain country. According to our national building regulation, this means that you have to fulfil EN 81-70 (or similar requirements) for almost every installed lift in Sweden.
