ROPS (Roll-Over Protection Structures)
This requirement defines performance requirements for metallic roll-over protective structures (ROPS) for earth-moving machinery, as well as a consistent and reproducible means of evaluating the compliance with these requirements by laboratory testing using static loading on a sample of ROPS.
ISO 3471:2008 Earth-moving machinery — Roll-over protective structures— Laboratory tests and performance requirements (ROPS) inşaat ve kazı makinalarında kullanılan kabinler için kabin üzerine laboratuvar ortamında ilgili standarta göre yük uygulanır.
Certification and tests are applicable to ROPS intended for the dozer; loader; backhoe loader; dumper; pipelayer; tractor section (prime mover) of a combination machine (e.g. tractor scraper, articulated frame dumper); grader; landfill compactor; roller; trencher. with seated operator as defined in ISO 6165 and with a mass greater than or equal to 700 kg.
Main tests are lateral loading, vertical loading, longitudinal loading, Charpy V-Notch impact strength for steel of cover.
FOPS (Falling Object Protective Structures)
FOPS tests and CE certification defines laboratory tests for measuring the structural characteristics of, and gives performance requirements in a representative test for, falling-object protective structures (FOPS) intended for use on ride-on earth-moving machines as defined in ISO 6165. It is applicable to both FOPS supplied as an
integral part of the machine and those supplied separately for attachment to the machine. It is not intended to apply to FOPS intended for use on landfill compactors, excavators, rollers, trenchers, pipelayers, for the additional seat for operation of an attachment (e.g. attachment backhoe), or on machines with a power rating
of less than 15 kW.

TESTPLUS is only company which can gives service for ROPS and FOPS testing on-site on manufacturer.(charpy C-Notch must be done outside lab) After test and technical documentation approval certification will be done according to the AnnexIV of 2006/42/EC Machinery Directive article 22-23 as EC Type Examination certicate.
