Insights in the static design
The annual inspection of storage equipment must be conducted by an expert person. Expert means that the inspector knows the laws, regulations, the rules of trade associations and the European standards which specifically apply to shelves such as DIN EN 15512, DIN EN 15620, DIN EN 15629 and the DIN EN 15635. Moreover, special know-how about the specific storage equipment/rack system is necessary.
For a qualified inspection it is absolutely necessary that the inspector has access to the static design. The leading shelf manufacturers represented in the Verband für Lagertechnik und Betriebseinrichtungen e.V. have developed a common training in order to assure perfect qualification of the storage inspectors.
