Abstract The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER, see CIS 99-1428) require lifting equipment and lifting machinery to be thoroughly inspected by a competent person. They also introduced a new concept, "the scheme of thorough examination". The objective of this report is to provide specific information to assist owners, users and competent persons on meeting these new requirements. It includes a general section that can be applied to most types of equipment, supplemented by annexes that provide extra information on specific equipment.
