||This article reviews current Spanish legislation applicable to tower cranes. Cranes have a relatively long useful life, and may have been manufactured more than 10 years earlier, in compliance with legislation applicable at that time, and may have since been subject to repairs and modifications. Legislation and the corresponding application regulations require following a comprehensive list of periodical revisions, inspections and controls depending on the date of manufacture, modifications made and the type of use. The various applicable laws, technical regulations and standards are discussed.
