Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC)

Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC)Today the machinery safety aspects are regulated by Directive 2006/42/ЕС that came into full effect in December 2009.

This Directive updated and replaced the earlier Machinery Directive 98/37/EC adopted by the the Council of the European Communities in 1989. The document was the first to set out common requirements for machinery safety. It has successfully achieved the objective of aligning standards established by legislations of the EU member-countries.

Before the common document was developed, its essential principles had been defined in the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 1992 and applied in the United Kingdom.

A new interpretation of machinery safety requirements — Directive 2006/42/ЕС is intended to minimize potential hazards and injuries in operating machines and equipment. The Directive requires that equipment be designed, built, operated and maintained in line with all mandatory safety rules.

Directive 2006/42/ЕС can potentially apply to all mechanical devices.
