Achieving the free movement of goods lies at the heart of achieving an open market for business in Europe.
The Machinery Directive 89/392/EEC, as amended by Directives 91/368/EEC, 93/44/EEC and 93/68/EEC

Achieving the free movement of goods lies at the heart of achieving an open market for business in Europe.

'New Approach' Directives set out 'essential requirements', written in general terms, which must be met before products may be supplied in the United Kingdom or anywhere else in the Community.

The Directives also say how manufacturers are to show that products meet the 'essential requirements'. Products meeting the requirements are to carry CE marking, which should mean that they can be supplied anywhere in the Community.

The new machinery directive comes into force on 29th December 2009 and we have included the latest UK Guidance document for your information.
The Machinery DIRECTIVE 2006/42/EC.

The new machinery directive comes into force on 29th December 2009 and we have included the latest UK Guidance document for your information.

'New Approach' Directives set out 'essential requirements', written in general terms, which must be met before products may be supplied in the United Kingdom or anywhere else in the Community.

The Directives also say how manufacturers are to show that products meet the 'essential requirements'. Products meeting the requirements are to carry CE marking, which should mean that they can be supplied anywhere in the Community.

The Low Voltage Directive 06/95/EC

The Directives also state how manufacturers should demonstrate that products meet the 'Essential Requirements'. Products meeting these requirements carry CE marking, which means they can be sold anywhere in the European Union.

The Low Voltage Directive is one such Directive. It has been implemented into (consolidated) United Kingdom law by the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994 which came into force, subject to certain transitional provisions, on 9 January 1995.

The EMC Directive 02/108/EC

The equipment covered by this Directive should include both apparatus and fixed installations. However, separate provision should be made for each. This is so because, whereas apparatus as such may move freely within the Community, fixed installations on the other hand are installed for permanent use at a predefined location, as assemblies of various types of apparatus and, where appropriate, other devices.

The composition and function of such installations correspond in most cases to the particular needs of their operators.

The ATEX Directive 94/9/EC

Equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres

Essential health and safety requirements: equipment, protective systems and safety devices must satisfy the relevant essential health and safety requirements set out in Annex C.

Safe working with flammable substances

Small quantities of dangerous goods can be found in most workplaces. Whatever they are used for, the storage and use of such goods can pose a serious hazard unless basic safety principles are followed. If you use one particular group of dangerous goods - flammable and explosive substances
- this leaflet will help you to:

• be aware of the hazards of various types of flammable substance;
• be aware of the basic standards which apply to safe handling and storage of flammable substances;
• introduce procedures to prevent accidents and protect people from the hazards of flammable substances;
• find more detailed information when you need it.

Pressure equipment directive 97/23/EC

General Requirements
Subject to the exclusions described below, the PER make it an offence for a ‘responsible person’ (see page 6) to place on the market, put into service or otherwise supply pressure equipment and assemblies above specified pressure/ volume thresholds unless:

• they are safe;
• they meet essential safety requirements covering design, manufacture and testing;
• they satisfy appropriate conformity assessment procedures and are accompanied by a declaration of conformity; and
• they carry the CE marking and other information in English.

We help machine manufacturers and importers from around the world to CE Mark their machines, products, processes and systems.

Following the requirements of the main EU Directives such as, Machinery Directive, EMC Directive, Low Voltage Directive, Pressure Equipment Directive, ATEX Directive and many more European Machine Safety Legislation.
