Holistic approach of CE-CON

CE labelling according to the machinery directive

We look upon CE labelling not just from the perspective of the manufacturer. On closer inspection, it quickly becomes apparent how extensive the scope of CE actually is.

CE labelling according to the machinery directive also applies to operators of machines, e.g. when performing conversions that result in additional risk. In such cases, this can constitute a significant modification, necessitating renewed CE labelling.

Furthermore, we view the topic of hazard assessment according to German industrial safety legislation as very much a part of our work.

It is not a critical consideration in this respect whether the CE conformity assessment is a one-off process performed by the manufacturer or a regular repetitive hazard assessment by an operator of machines. The risks are the same.

CE labelling when converting existing systems and machines

The integration and conversion of machines in existing systems can interfere in the processes of the existing systems to such an extent that a significant modification should often be the assumed outcome, including with respect to CE labelling. This can be determined as early as the planning phase.

The early initiation of the CE certification procedure consequently ensures that all safety relevant protective measures can be performed as early as the implementation phase.

This not only results in a considerable reduction of initial cost estimates.

Above all, it gives companies the certainty of having done everything that can for their employees’ safety, which ultimately is the express objective of CE labelling.

What you must be mindful of as a manufacturer of machines

When new machines or systems are commissioned, CE labelling in accordance with the technical minimum safety requirements of the EC machinery directive is required. This must be considered as early as the procurement stage. As a manufacturer, therefore, you are obligated to include certain things with any newly supplied machine or system:

  • A name plate,
  • A CE label according to the machinery directive,
  • A declaration of conformity in one of the official languages of the European Union and
  • An operating manual including all hazard warnings or labels for actuators and control elements.
