If you have questions about the certification status of a company, feel free to contact us at

Our experts certify quality management systems according to the relevant annexes to the European Lifts Directive 2014/33/EU on the manufacture and installation of lifts. This involves three aspects:

  • production quality assurance (without design), as per annex XII of the European Lifts Directive 2014/33/EU (module D)
  • full quality assurance (with design), as per annex XI of the European Lifts Directive 2014/33/EU (module H1)

Furthermore, we also provide certification as per ISO 9001 (see the relevant data sheet above)

The intervention of a notified body in the design, manufacturing and installation of passenger lifts is no longer required for
every lift installation. You may yourself conduct the final inspection on new lifts.

ISO 9001 certification will result in a win-win situation for you and for your customers:

  • your customers will be required to conduct only 2 preventive inspections instead of 4 each year on their lifts
  • your customers will receive better service
  • your employees will be more satisfied in their work
  • your shareholders and investors will have higher profits on their investments, and will better manage risks’
  • your suppliers and partners will benefit from a stable and growing level of cooperation
  • society as a whole will have a positive image of your company


  • the Royal Decree for the implementation of the European Lifts Directive 2014/33/EC
  • the Royal Decree of 9th March 2003 on the safety of lifts

Norms and Standards

  • the EN 81 series and related
  • the ISO 9001 standard concerning the requirements of quality management systems

This certification is relevant for designers, manufacturers and installers of passenger lifts.
