Industrial Machinery Safety: Machinery Directive

Testing and certification solutions that ensure compliance

What is machinery directive for industrial machinery safety?

The European Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC was introduced to establish broad safety objectives for manufacturers and distributors of a wide range of mechanical equipment. The directive requires manufacturers to demonstrate that their products comply with the various EU regulations related to the machinery they produce.

The Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC is a set of legal requirements for manufacturers and distributors of machines in or to the EU market that ensures the safety of operators, maintenance personnel, equipment, and the environment. According to the European Commission, the Machinery Directive “promotes the free movement of machinery within the single market” and “guarantees a high level of protection for EU workers and its citizens.”
