ECOL gets certified

The European association of abnormal road transport and mobile cranes (ESTA) said that its European Crane Operators’ Licence (ECOL) has been awarded ISO 9001-2015 certification.

The award means that ECOL can apply to have the licence registered and recognised by the Netherlands qualifications framework (NLQF), through which it will be aligned with the European qualifications framework (EQF) across Europe.

ESTA director, Ton Klijn, said: “If everything goes according to plan, we anticipate an answer from NLQF on the classification of ECOL by the end of December. We will start the work on the classification process immediately.”
