Abstract 

ISO 6966-2:2005 specifies the minimum design requirements applicable to all aircraft ground support equipment in order to ensure

  • safety of staff operating or maintaining the equipment or in its vicinity;
  • protection of aircraft against interference or damage.

The requirements of ISO 6966-2:2005 apply to any piece of aircraft ground support equipment used on airports.

ISO 6966-2:2005 does not provide all the design requirements applicable for aircraft ground support equipment. Other requirements apply, and can be found in separate standards:

  • ISO 6966-1 specifies the general, other than safety related, design requirements applicable to all aircraft ground support equipment;
  • ISO 4116 specifies the additional requirements applicable for conveying surfaces of those pieces of aircraft ground support equipment intended for handling and loading of baggage and cargo unit load devices;
  • specific standards, listed in the Bibliography, define the functional and performance requirements for certain types of aircraft ground support equipment.
