This European Standard specifies the general characteristics of fibre ropes and their constituent material. It is intended to be used in conjunction with the individual fibre rope standard which covers physical properties and specific requirements for that particular type product.
This European standard does not intend to address all of the safety matters associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user to select a size and physical properties to meet the requirements of the application and to determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to its use.
This European standard also gives some information on use of fibre ropes and also on their inspection and retirement criteria.
