European Norm




This document specifies the technical requirements to minimize the hazards listed in Clause 4 which can arise during the commissioning, operation and maintenance of AFE when used as intended, including misuse reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer, when carried out in accordance with the specifications given by the manufacturer or his authorized representative. It also takes into account some performance requirements recognized as essential by authorities, aircraft and ground support equipment (GSE) manufacturers as well as airlines, airports and fuelling companies.
This document applies to all types of aircraft fuelling equipment:
a) aircraft refuellers,
b) hydrant dispensers,
c) defuellers,
d) hydrant pit servicing vehicles,
e) pit cleaner vehicles, and
f) stationary dispensing units
intended to service aircraft with aviation fuels and to be operated on airfields, heliports and other aircraft refuelling related areas such as maintenance bases.
This document does not apply to:
g) AFE whose only power source for aircraft refuelling is directly applied manual effort,
h) hydrant systems, tank farms, pipework and underground tanks,
i) specific hazards due to the operation of the AFE in a potentially explosive atmosphere, and
j) built-in fire extinguisher systems.
No extra requirements on noise and vibration are provided other than those in EN 1915-3:2004+A1:2009 and EN 1915- 4:2004+A1:2009.
NOTE EN 1915-3:2004+A1:2009 and EN 1915-4:2004+A1:2009 provide the general GSE vibration and noise requirements.
This document does not deal with hazards in respect to a standard automotive chassis and from other vehicles on the apron.
This document is not applicable to AFE which are manufactured before the date of publication of this document by CEN.
This part of the EN 12312 series when used in conjunction with EN 1915-1:2013, EN 1915-2:2001+A1:2009, EN 1915-3:2004+A1:2009 (for vehicles) and EN 1915-4:2004+A1:2009 provides the requirements for AFE.
