Forklifts - Approved Code of Practice (ACOP)

Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) for training operators and instructors of powered industrial lift trucks (forklifts).

This code of practice outlines a standard of training that should be provided by forklift owners, managers and trainers of forklift operators. Each work environment may require training to suit the needs of that environment.

While this code has been based on the existing New Zealand Standard NZS/ASME/ANSI B56.1 Safety standard for low and high lift trucks, any other standard providing an equal or better standard and recognised and approved by Standards New Zealand, will be acceptable.
