Testing of Wheelchair Lifts for Entry to or Exit from a Personally Licensed Vehicle(STABILIZED Apr 2021)
This test procedure is for Qualification Testing of electrically powered hydraulic or mechanically operated devices which permit a person in a manual or powered wheelchair to enter or exit a personally licensed vehicle.
It establishes minimum test requirements for compliance. A lift completing the test without failure under this procedure shall be considered in compliance. The tests in Section 3 shall be done in the sequence listed.
This technical report is being stabilized because the technical committee cannot find users for the technical report. It is not possible to determine with great assurance whether a technical report is being used, how often it may be used, or by whom it may be used. Stabilization is a way to alert potential users that the owning technical committee will no longer be maintaining the technical report and users should employ the technical report at their own discretion.
The compliance requirements for wheelchair lifts to assist persons with limited mobility in entering or leaving a vehicle are now mandatory in the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards 49 CFR § 571.403 and 49 CFR § 571.404.
