Amended Guidance to the Machinery Directive

The second edition of the Guide to Application of the Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC) originally published by the European Commission in June 2010 was amended at the end of October to become edition 2.2. The guide provides useful insight into fulfilling CE Marking obligations for equipment under the scope of the Directive.

This update to the  Guide, contains a number of clarifications and corrections to the concepts of “safety components” and “partly completed machinery”, and some edits to ensure coherence with the LVD Guide. There are two newly added paragraphs about the machinery control units (§417) and safety components which are considered to be logic units (§418).

A copy of the Guide is available on the European Commission website here: https://ec.europa.eu/docsroom/documents/38022
