The machine guidelines declare several requirements. All (new) machines and devices which are to be installed and put into operation at the workplace must have an EC conformity declaration.
In some special cases, e.g. with devices that are to be used in areas prone to explosion, it is inevitable to include a third party in the conformity assessment procedure.
The same applies to machines listed in Annex IV of Machine Directive 2006/42/EC (in this case diverse conformity assessment procedures are allowed, with the choice being with the manufacturer).
We invite you to get acquainted with these guidelines.
