Machinery Inspections and Audits

Helping you achieve compliance with European regulations (CE Marking) and gain a passport to your key markets

Industrial Machinery Challenge

The market for industrial machinery is becoming truly global. Across the European Union (EU), the installation of new machinery is subject to the 2006/42/EC directive, which defines precise rules for CE Marking, based on a number of machine operation health and safety requirements. 

In the EU and many other markets, machinery cannot be put into service without having gone through a conformity assessment process carried out by a notified body. This process encompasses both the equipment and its components, according to complex harmonized standards. 

For machinery that is potentially most dangerous – and their safety components –, a type approval process must be applied by an Independent Notified Body. This is mandatory to obtain the compliance declaration and authorization to apply the CE Marking.
