Abstract: This paper concerns conditions on point inverses which insure that a mapping between locally compact, separable, metric ANR's is an approximate fibration. Roughly a mapping is said to be $ {\pi _i}$-movable [respectively, $ {H_i}$-movable] provided that nearby fibers include isomorphically into mutual neighborhoods on $ {\pi _i}$ [resp. $ {H_i}$]. An earlier result along this line is that $ {\pi _i}$-movability for all i implies that a mapping is an approximate fibration. The main result here is that for a $ U{V^1}$ mapping, $ {\pi _i}$-movability for $ i \leqslant k - 1$ plus $ {H_k}$- and $ {H_{k + 1}}$-movability imply $ {\pi _k}$-movability of the mapping. Hence a $ U{V^1}$ mapping which is $ {H_i}$-movable for all i is an approximate fibration. Also, if a $ U{V^1}$ mapping is $ {\pi _i}$-movable for $ i \leqslant k$ and k is at least as large as the fundamental dimension of any point inverse, then it is an approximate fibration. Finally, a $ U{V^1}$ mapping $ f:{M^m} \to {N^n}$ between manifolds is an approximate fibration provided that f is $ {\pi _i}$-movable for all $ i \leqslant \max \{ m - n,\tfrac{1}{2}(m - 1)\} $.
