Conformity / CE mark
Manufacturers who would like to sell their machines and plants worldwide are subject to local legal conditions regarding trade and quality, which are increasingly including requirements of safety technology. In Europe, the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC is the foundation for this field. Verification is to be provided through achieving EU conformity and, in relation thereto, obtaining the CE mark, which acts as a "passport for machines and plants" within the EU.
The tec.nicum functional safety engineers advise and accompany machine manufacturers across the whole process of proving conformity not just in line with the European Machinery Directive, but also with other national regulations of target markets worldwide.
