Interpretation Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC: Interview with Ian Fraser

Interview with Ian Fraser, former Policy Officer at the European Commission responsible for the Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC), and Team Leader about questions related to the Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC).

Doug Nix and Han Zuyderwijk discuss with Ian about:
– the regulatory developments in the directive in the last ten years;
– the concept of the ‘person authorised to compile the technical documentation’ and how it differs from the authorised representative;
– the integration of risk assessment into the EMC Directive and Low Voltage Directive;
– responsibilities for products placed in the market when a) the relevant directives are amended, and b) relevant standards are amended. What does that mean for the conformity assessment and the Declaration of Conformity;
– how the future amendments to the Medical Devices Regulation/Directive relates to the Machinery Directive;
– are electromagnetic compatibility aspects of machinery going to be reinforced in the Machinery Directive;
whether there should be more regulations or certification of CE/Machine Safety consultants.

We briefly lost connection and therefore the recording was interrupted for a short while. Obviously, it pays off to join the live session 😉

How to Check Suppliers Products’ CE Marking Compliance

Often when you buy products or components to be used in your products, they bear the CE marking and the supplier indicates that they are in compliance with European directives and standards. For your company it can be important to receive CE compliant products or components, because you may bear the end responsibility for these products. Perhaps because your company resells these products in the European market under its own brand name. Or perhaps because your company incorporates the product/component in its own product.

Together For Growth

Together For New Growth

20 years ago, the European single market was born. Borders disappeared; bonds between countries were strengthened. Today, in a world which is more complex and uncertain, the need for unity has become even stronger – in fact it is vital. More than ever, the single market remains our greatest asset in facing the crisis and the global challenges ahead.

“Together for new growth” is a documentary film about the single market and the importance of economic integration in Europe. We invite you to watch the video and – if you like it – to share it with your contacts.
