Machine safety

Machine Directive 2006/42/EC

warning label

The safety of machines is regulated by the aforementioned directives and countless harmonised standards and other non-harmonised national provisions.

DEKRA experts identify the relevant standards and then carry out the corresponding tests to ensure the safety of the machine.

DEKRA is also the notified body for Annex IV machines such as vehicle hoists and people lifters and it issues the relevant EC-type certification for these product groups after successful testing.

Other services:

  • Risk analysis (risk assessment)
  • Conformity tests
  • Auditing operating manuals
  • Technical safety reports
