Operators who carry out lifting work in the Netherlands on a machine with a working load moment of 10 tons or more, must have a valid TCVT certificate (Foundation Supervision Certification Vertical Transport) for the machine in question. Foreign operators who work in the Netherlands must also be in possession of such a valid certificate.

Obtaining a TCVT certificate ensures that only skilled operators are allowed to carry out lifting work on machines with a hoisting capacity of 10 tons or more.
