From the 1st of January 1995 all machinery placed on the market or put into service within the European Economic Area must bear a CE Mark and must comply with the requirements laid down in the Machinery Directive. Failure to do this a criminal offence.;This means that all manufacturers, or their authorized representatives, must take the appropriate steps to ensure compliance. While the Machinery Directive defines what needs to be done and the Harmonized European Standards (when available) provide technical details about the Directive, this book provides manufacturers and designers with practical guidance on how they can fully meet the requirements.;This guide removes the Directive from its legal framework and provides a step-by-step approach to meeting its essential requirements. Chapter 1 views the Directive in the context of new European legislation. Chapters 2 and 3 detail an approach which has been used by over 300 companies throughout Europe. This approach includes the need to assess the hazards and associated risks for each product, the documentation requirements of the Technical File, the various forms of Declaration and the affixing of the CE Mark.;This volume has been revised to include the November 1995, February 1996, and July 1996 Updates, which are intended to extend the scope of the main volume, as well as ensuring that the existing text of the guide remains current.
