Machinery Directive Harmonised Standards, 28 November 2013
Machinery Directive Harmonised Standards, 28 November 2013A revised list of Machinery Directive Harmonised Standards was published in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJ) on 28 November 2013. These Harmonised standards provide a presumption of conformity to the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC (see below for definitions of Harmonised Standard and Machinery Directive). The latest complete list can be downloaded from the European Commission website (2MB PDF). This new list of standards harmonised to the Machinery Directive supersedes all previous versions. For the first time, the list divides the standards into A-type standards, B-type standards (but not B1 and B2 types) and C-type standards, with an explanation provided for each of the three types.
The information below has been extracted with care from the official list, but it remains the reader’s responsibility to check the OJ list via the link above, and also to check the Machinery Directive page on the European Commission website for any newer lists.
New and updated harmonised standards and amendments published in the list for the first time are as below. Note that EN 1088 is still listed in the OJ, even though its replacement, EN ISO 14119, was published in October. CEN has told MachineBuilding.net that the reason for this is that EN ISO 14119 was published too late for the list dated 28 November 2013, but it should be included in the next list.
