Buildings can be erected quickly, economically and to a high standard. This is especially true of precast concrete structures. For this reason, precast concrete elements are being used more frequently in structural engineering. Lifting anchors and lifting anchor systems have proved to be invaluable tools for the fast and reliable handling of these components. The usage regulations in this sphere are based on national experiences and although the physical conditions are the same, regulations are not uniform in Europe. The European Commission wished to remedy this situation.
