ISO/TC 127 Earth Moving Machines
Machines Used in Mining and Construction
for Excavating, Loading, Transporting,
Spreading and Compacting Earth, Rock
and Other Materials.
ISO/TC 127 for Earth Moving Machines
ISO/TC 127 for Earth Moving Machines Was
Formed in 1968 to Respond to the Need for
Global Standards.
Objective - Develop a Complete Set of ISO
Standards That Could Be Used As the Basis for
National Standards and Regulations
Approximately 150 ISO/TC 127 Standards Have
Been Published to Address Commercial Needs
and All Safety Risks
ISO/TC 127 Is Currently Revising 15 and
Developing 15 New Standards to Address
Smaller, Larger and New Types of Machines, New
Technologies and New Applications.
Value of Safety Standards
1. Define Acceptable Safety Levels
To Quantify Safety Expectations of Health And
Safety Organizations and Machine Users
To Establish Acceptable Safety Levels for Machine
2. Promote Single Global Requirements
3. Establish a Level of Safety To Allow Machines
to Be Known as Safe Machines, Not
Hazardous Machines
4. To Enable Manufacturers to Self Declare
Conformity to Standards and Regulations to
Reduce Machine Costs

Define Safety Risks Create ISO Standards

ISO Standards To Address Safety Risks
Objective Address All Safety Risks for
Operators, Mechanics, and People Around
Obtain Input From Machine Users, Health
and Safety Experts, and Manufacturers
Define Acceptable Performance Criteria to
Address All Safety Risks for Machines
Create Global Standards in ISO/TC 127
Develop Standards to Address Specific Safety
Risks (brakes, steering, access systems,
visibility, controls, etc.)
Cover All Safety Risks in a Single Standard
that References the Specific Risk Standards -
