Proving EC conformity

What practical preconditions have to be taken into account if you take several machines out of an existing installation in order to use them to set up a new production facility?

What do you need to consider if you add parts or components to a machine or item of plant in order, for example, to manufacture new products?

What challenges do you face as a producer if you also become the party commissioning a machine or an item of plant?

If you wish, we will help you by

  • providing assistance with: the provision of evidence of CE conformity
  • the drawing up of the risk analysis/assessment according to Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC Annex I point 1.2, DIN EN ISO 12100, DIN EN 4414, DIN EN ISO 13849-1 and -2,
  • the drawing up of a safety plan with suggested solutions,
  • verification of the safety functions according to DIN EN ISO 13849-1,
  • the drawing up of operating/assembly instructions according to DIN EN 82079-1,
  • and by providing assistance with the putting together of the technical documents according to Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC
  • as well as assistance with the drawing up of the declaration of conformity
  • The manufacturer's and/or commissioning party's declaration of EC conformity confirms that a machine or item of plant that is brought into circulation by it meets the basic health and safety requirements of the relevant European directives. This declaration is also a precondition for the awarding of the CE marking.
  • Directive 2006/42/EC (or the Machinery Directive for short) lays down uniform provisions regarding the necessary level of protection for preventing accidents involving machines which are brought into circulation within the European Economic Area (EEA), Switzerland and Turkey. This Directive is transposed into German law through the Produktsicherheitsgesetz (ProdSG) (Product Safety Act).
  • If you are honest, is it not often true that you don't have the certificates to hand when you actually need them for old machinery and plant or second-hand bought-in parts? Perhaps it is also the case that directives and EN standards are now out of date, and that you can't provide evidence of all the tests that have been carried out, and that over the course of time operating instructions as well as safety calculations and measurements have not been consistently updated and documented? Do you have a specially trained and/or certified group of employees within your workforce that could be entrusted with such a task?
  • Since 1968 our engineers and technicians have been actively involved in the development, design/construction, installation, commissioning and operation of machinery and plant. Modern, advanced machinery systems, drive systems, control systems and safety systems are the focus and basis of our day-to-day work.

When implementing your project as well as providing advice (e.g. current technology and design) and inspection services (checking of old and new machinery and documentation)

we also draw up reports (e.g. on bought-in machines), and we help you to save time and money in overall terms.
