This European standard specifies the criteria to be used when verifying the structural design of a lighting column by type testing. It does not cover testing for quality control purposes. It applies to post top columns <= 20 m nominal height and to columns with brackets <= 18 m nominal height. It does not take into account effects caused by the shedding of vortices (Karman turbulence) nor effects caused by the attachment of signs, overhead wires, etc.
