This study reviews the requirements for an effective reliable inspection and discard policy based on monitoring the condition of ropes used in Indian mines. This contrasts with current practice which is based upon a policy of 'Statutory Life Policy'. Data have been collected data on rope service to study the influence of operating parameters on the degradation mechanisms affecting hoisting ropes in Indian mines. In addition to this, records on failed/premature discarded hoisting ropes from Indian mines have been also collected to classify the prominent causes of failure in terms of operating parameters. These data include 645 records of ropes (606 from 303 drum winders and 39 from 11 friction winders) which have been In service, and 45 records of failure and premature discard categorized in terms of different parameters. These data inform the proposed recommendations for policy to minimised failure through the adoption an efficacious inspection procedure.
