SERVICE SOLUTIONS
FOR MACHINES AND SYSTEMS

Comprehensive support for the CE process 

WHY THE CE PROCESS?

To be able to offer a machine on the European market, it has to comply with certain standards and directives.
The documentation required for the CE conformity guarantees legal certainty and can be created with the highest possible degree of productivity.

RISK ASSESSMENT

Identifying and assessing hazards in accordance with EN ISO 12100.

A detailed risk assessment on your machine is essential to developing the safety concept. It forms the basis for the hardware selection and ensures integration in compliance with the standards.

The risk assessment is based on EN ISO 12100 and is included as a document in the CE declaration of conformity.

We assist you with the risk assessment and advise you on site.

Want to build your own know-how on this subject? Then attend our seminars on the fundamental principles of functional safety or on the retrofit of old machines.

SAFETY CONCEPT 

Development of the safety concept on the basis of the risk assessment in accordance with EN ISO 13849-1 for hazard points.

We use the risk assessment to prepare for you a detailed safety concept in accordance with EN ISO 13849-1 for hazard points. At the same time, we determine the performance level required for the technical safeguards and make recommendations for possible risk reduction measures on this basis – maintaining productivity all the while.

If you would like to improve your knowledge in this area, attend our seminars on CESE or CSE and become a TÜV certified functional safety expert!

INSPECTION / PERIODIC TESTING

Inspection of the technical safeguards on the machine.

The first inspection is performed when your machine is commissioned. In order to guarantee safety going forward, we carry out periodic inspections during machine operation – the so-called overrun traverse measurement.

Please also visit our seminars on retrofitting and inspecting OPDs.

FAQ

What does a CE-marking mean?

Machines with a CE marking comply with the requirements of the European Union directives. This marking is a prerequisite for the sale and operation of machines, which is why this regulation applies in all EU countries.

 

According to Article 114 of the EU treaties, the manufacturers of the products mentioned in the following directives are affected:

 

  • Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC
  • Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EC
  • ATEX Directive 2014/34/EC
  • EMC Directive 2014/30/EC
  • Pressure Equipment Directive 97/23/EC
  • Simple Pressure Vessels Directive 2009/105/EC
  • Product Safety Directive 2001/95/EC

... and, according to Article 153, the operators with regard to the aspects of the

 

  • Occupational Health and Safety Framework Directive 89/391/EEC
  • Work Equipment Directive 89/655/EEC
  • ATEX Operating Directive 1999/92/EC
How does CE marking help to ensure safe machines?

In addition to protection targets for machinery, the EU Machinery Directive also defines areas of application and assessment procedures. Harmonized standards help with implementation.

Suitable standards exist, among other things, for

  • the risk assessment procedure (assessment, mitigation, evaluation),
  • the evaluation of safety functions and
  • the implementation of safety requirements.
How do I get a CE-mark?

The prerequisite for CE marking is a manufacturer's declaration of conformity. This officially confirms that the product (in our case the machine) complies with the requirements of all EU directives applicable to the product. The declaration of conformity must be documented in detail by the manufacturer. In the case of the Machinery Directive, this includes the risk assessment, the technical documentation and the operating instructions for the machine.

Who is liable if problems arise after a machine has been placed on the market?

In Germany, the Product Safety Act (ProdSG) applies. According to this law, the "person placing the product on the market" is liable. According to § 2 ProdSG, persons or companies who make a product or machine available on the market for the first time are those who place it on the market. Operators can also become manufacturers if they substantially modify machines, assemble systems or complete machines. Anyone who imports machines from outside the EU is also responsible for conformity with the directive and is liable accordingly.

Which areas does the Machinery Directive cover?

Basically, the EU Directive 2006/42/EC applies to

  • Machinery
  • Replaceable equipment
  • Safety components
  • Load handling attachments
  • Chains, ropes and belts
  • Removable cardan shafts
  • Incomplete machines
