ISO 8100 Part 32 is a new international standard published in 2020, addressing the planning and selection of passenger lifts for installation in offices, hotels, and residential buildings. The standard describes two methods to determine an appropriate lift installation: traffic calculation and simulation. Guidance is given on inputs to the analysis and how to review its results. A Technical Report is being prepared to support the application of the standard. In preparation for this work, a survey was undertaken to help understand the application of the standard and how the authors could best support its use. The survey results provide insights into how people engage with the standard and what additional guidance needs to be provided. This paper summarises the feedback and the scope of the additional guidance which will be included in the Technical Report.
