European Commission updates list of European Harmonized Standards for the Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC)

On Friday April 8, the European Commission published an updated list of the European harmonized standards that pertain to the Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC). The standards on this list may be used by machinery manufacturers to prove that their machinery complies with the essential requirements of this directive.

This updated list is important to all manufacturers of CE marked machinery that have used European harmonized standards to prove CE compliance. If you have applied standards to prove compliance with the aforementioned directive, we recommend you to check the new list of standards to see if any of the standard you applied have been updated, or whether there are new standards available for your products. When standards have been updated by this list, you need to re-evaluate your products against the updated standard and update your Declaration of Conformity.

The updated list of standards can be found in our Library shortly.

    • Hi Steve,

      Send me an email with the details of the machine you need to have CE marked and I will point you in the right direction. You may also want to look at our CE self-certification course ‘The Ultimate CE Marking Guide’ that guides you through the process and allows you to do the CE evaluations and paperwork yourself (support included).
