ISO/TS 22559-2:2010 specifies global safety parameters (GSPs) for lifts (elevators), their components and their functions, and complements the system and methods specified in ISO/TS 22559-1 for mitigating safety risks that can arise in the course of the operation and use of, or work on, lifts (elevators).
ISO/TS 22559-2:2010 is applicable to lifts that can
a) be located in any permanent and fixed structure within or attached to a building, except lifts located in private residences (single family units) or means of transport, e.g. ships,
b) have any rated load, size of load-carrying unit and speed, and travel distance and number of landings,
c) be affected by fire in the load-carrying unit, earthquakes, weather or floods, and
d) be foreseeably misused (e.g. overloaded), but not vandalized.
