Machine Safety EU Conformity and CE Marking

TEG Risk manufacturing clients often have a need to ensure that machinery they’re exporting to Europe conforms to stringent EU health and safety standards.

 

It is the manufacturer’s responsibility to ensure that EU health and safety standards are met for any machinery being sold in the European Economic Area (EEA). Most machinery is under the jurisdiction of the Electromagnetic Capability (EMC) Directive or the Machinery Directive (MD). A Machine Conformity Assessment against the EU Essential Health and Safety Requirements needs to be carried out for each relevant directive, along with the relevant European Normalised Standards. The process is validated with a written declaration and a CE Mark affixed to the machine.

Familiarity and experience with the European process requirement and the extensive number of European regulations is essential. However, with the correct guidance, the CE Marking process is straightforward.

Ensuring EU Conformity is a core skill for some of the TEG Risk team. Some of our engineering experts have worked in the Machine Risk Assessment industry for several years in Europe, while also obtaining CE Assessment qualifications. Combining international knowledge, with our extensive machine safety standards understanding gives us a unique perspective for Kiwi manufacturers.
