Our Guide To The Machinery Directive in EU

When you have a huge range of different equipment products, keeping track of what documentation is required for what product can be a headache. But don’t sweat – we’re here to help!

The Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC) is a European Union directive meant to ensure that all machinery and accompanying equipment, components, and accessories are risk assessed, manufactured, tested, and documented according to a common health and safety standard. In our experience, many suppliers outside the EU also use the directive because it’s solid, comprehensive, and quality assured.

However, as with most directives and other regulations, it can be hard to keep track of all the requirements and documentation you need. We created this Machinery Directive Guide to help give you an overview of the main points of the directive and the documentation you need.


Hope it helps!
