Lifts – the topic of the new issue of "BDS Compass" magazine


Life in the city is impossible without lifts. It is difficult to imagine an apartment building, a hospital or a hotel without a lift that saves time and energy. And again the standards assist the safe movement between floors.


This issue of BDS Compass magazine presents how the lifts are constructed and installed, and what rules exist for calculation and testing of their components. Standards that ensure our safety in the lift, even in event of disaster such as earthquake and fire, are also presented.


According to the expert Tihomir Dimitrov, the use and application of standards in the field of safety of lifts, even if they are not mandatory, brings benefits to all - producers and sales representatives, installers and maintenance personnel, clients and end users. He underlines that standards reflect the state of the art of innovations in the field of engineering.


The section "In Focus" presents the standard concerning bribery. Reflecting the good international practices, it is applicable to any organization, regardless of its type, size and nature of activity. This is another proof that standards are a powerful tool towards safer and better world.
