In order to minimize the risks arising from the machines, carrying the CE Mark indicates that the machine complies with the basic health and safety requirements of the 2006/42/EC Machinery Regulation and that this machine can be sold within the countries where the Customs Union Agreement has been signed. The Machinery Directive covers machinery, interchangeable equipment, safety components, lifting aids, cutting equipment, machining machinery chains, ropes and belts, mechanical transmissions and partially completed machinery.
If the product is one of the machines defined as risky in the Machinery Regulation and does not comply with the harmonized standard covering all basic health and safety requirements, the notified body must carry out a conformity assessment activity. In these conditions, it confirms its conformity by issuing the document known as the CE Certificate, which is the EC Type Examination Certificate or the Full Quality Assurance Certificate.
In this process, before machine manufacturers launch a product;
– Prepare the technical file of the product.
– Specify the risks related to the machine and prepare the instructions for use.
– Perform the necessary tests and controls for the conformity assessment process.
– Prepare the EC Declaration of Conformity in accordance with the product and the regulation.
– After these steps are completed, the machine should affix the CE mark.
