There is quite often confusion between periodic Thorough Examinations and Testing.
Basically, once an item of lifting equipment has a Test Certificate or has a CE certificate then it requires a Thorough Examination for fitness of purpose at prescribed intervals.
The Thorough Examination will be undertaken by a competent person usually independent of the equipment owner or company maintaining the equipment.
Lifting Tackle, attachments and items used for supporting personnel or suspending loads above personnel i.e. a vehicle lift would normally undergo a Thorough Examination every six months. Fixed lifting appliances such as overhead cranes, swing arm jibs etc. Would undergo Through Examination every 12 months.
