When does a Machine need to be CE Marked?
  • Where the manufacturer of relevant machinery himself puts that machinery into service or places it for sale within the EU.
  • Where having imported machinery from a country or territory outside the EU, puts that machinery into service.
  • If you are creating a complex assembly by interlinking a series of existing machines you are in effect creating something new.
  • If you are altering the function or performance of a machine or complex assembly, you are again creating something new and must ensure that the Directive is complied with.
What does the Manufacture, Importer or Distributor need to do?
  • Produce a complete technical file that meets the requirement of the Machinery Directive.
  • Issue a User & Service Manual than contains the required information as detailed in the Machinery Directive.
  • Issue a Declaration of Conformance
The process of the Machinery Directive:
(Under the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EU)

This specifies the necessary health and safety requirements, enforced throughout the EU, that the product has to meet before one can affix the CE marking.
