What standards should rope access equipment be tested to?

 

  • SPRAT maintains a standard supplement entitled Rope Access Equipment Standards. which is a non-exhaustive list of standards that may pertain to equipment used in rope access. 
  • As stated in that document, “ensuring that a standard, or specific equipment conforming to a standard, is appropriate for specific rope access applications and/or for meeting presiding regulatory authority requirements is a requirement within a properly managed rope access program.”
