LAWS require the Touchprotection Revisions !

The Minister of the  Employment policy and labor ministry have issued a long awaited decree, in which he has ordered the Touchprotection fitters revisions and standardized revisions to be performed systematically. It was very timely to order this systematic revision, because since the mandatory standards have been eliminated on December, 2001. no one, not the owners and not the users were required to perform these revisions any more. The detailed standards were revoked as well in February, 2003. The  22/2005. (XII.21.) FMM decree has modified the minimal required levels of the manual worktools and  their usage in the  14/2004. (IV.19.) FMM decree in its 2nd paragraph has defined the repairman’s revision A 22/2005. (XII.21.) FMM and then states the following :

„5/A.§ (1) The employer takes care of the small powered electric equipment’s touchprotection periodic revisions and different from the 4-5. §-paragraphs it will take care of the revisions as part of the standardized process.

(2) The revision overview must be done prior to starting the operation and after the  enlargement of the touchprotection and repairs, the last repair must be done with the standardized overview.

(3) The periodic revision must be accomplished :

a) monthly revision of the breaker  by repairman supervision

b) manual tools and portable safety transformers with annual revisions by repairman supervision

c) 8/1981.(XII. 27.) IpM decree covers the Communal and Building Touchprevention rules stating

    other electric equipment revision must be checked every 6 years

d) on other electric equipments every 3 years,with standardized revision.

As we have mentioned the decree is a stop-gap,but its still just a makeshift solution.

The Touchprotection revisions should be fully and completely finalized – together with several other electric safety themes, will be really completed int he shortly publicized Electric Safety Rulebook ( VBSZ ) for which all profesionnals are waiting for the past 10 years. ( The first version of this VBSZ Electric Safety Rulebook was made in 1995 by the professional experts. )

To remind the reader , the revision of the strong current electric equipments and the so called FireProtection Revision are in the 35/1996 (XII. 29.) BM decree, in the Nationwide FireProtection Decree and the 2/2002 (I. 23.) BM decree ensures depending on  the building’s firesafety classification .
